Milwaukee struggles to contain Sharks offense

Milwaukee hosted the Sharks (Wisconsin Rugby Club) on Saturday in a Division 3 match at Zablocki Park.

Although the Sharks drew first blood early, scoring at the 5-minute mark, Milwaukee took control for much of the first half and enjoyed a 15-7 lead after tries from Petfalski (shown above), Hackett, and Kloiber. 

But with one minute remaining, the Sharks struck back and narrowed the lead to just a single point. At the half, Milwaukee lead 15-14.

In the second half, the Sharks again scored first to take the lead for the second time in the match, a lead they would not relinquish.

Milwaukee continued to battle and after 73 minutes the match was separated by just a try with the Sharks up 34-27.

But the Sharks found another gear and closed out the match with a pair of tries. At the final whistle, the visitors were victorious 44-27.
