Milwaukee defeats Chicago as matches resume for Harlequins.

For the first time after Phillippe Leka’s injury on 4/3, the team stepped onto the field against the Condors at the Blaze’s field in Lemont, IL.

The first thing we recognized was that we were not alone as Lance, team captain, brought both the Blaze and their opposition together before their Midwest playoff game to pray for Phillippes recovery. It was an emotional moment for all those in attendance.

The Condors, while still in the process of rebuilding their club, provided strong opposition for this match but were eventually worn down by the forward pack and strong defense.

The eventually score being a win to the Harlequins 25-5. Our back line continued to display an improved flow and cohesion that was exciting to watch.
