The Pain Train kept rolling Sunday morning, with a 17-15 win over Georgia in the quarters and a 16-15 win over Georgia Tech in the semis. Both games featured Scott Sottosanti and Dan Harris running the show on offense, with Jon Xu and Richard Lange also stepping up big on the o-line. Ian Herrick and Spencer Diamond bolstered the defensive effort, getting critical D's when we needed them. The Train roared into a finals rematch against Florida State hungry for revenge. The Train struggled early in the game, perhaps tired from the 2 long games earlier in the day. However, the depth of our team really showed in the 2nd half, as a whole cast of players stepped up and helped the Train fight back to a 13-13 tie. FSU scored to make it 14-13, and then after a quick turn, scored again to take the 15-13 win. A disappointing end to a great weekend. Nonetheless, it was an incredibly successful fall season for the Pain Train, and a sign that the Train has the potential to do big things this season.
After a long winter break that saw all members of the Pain Train working hard while spread around the country, the Pain Train returned to Hanover bigger, stronger, and faster. After adding '14 Gerben Scherpbier at the beginning of the winter, the Pain Train is complete and ready to take off running.
After being stuck in Leverone these past few weeks, we're gearing up for our first test of the year, Warm Up: A Florida Affair, next weekend. The Pain Train kicks off our season at 9am next Friday, February 15 against Central Florida. Follow all the action on our twitter or on Score Reporter.
