On a sunny but cold and windy day The MCRC traveled north to St. Michael’s College. The Middlebury B and C sides faced off against St. Mike’s A and B sides over 120 minutes of rugby (three 40 minute periods). The Boys in Blue ran in 10 tries on the day, converting four, while holding St. Mike’s to 1 first period score. In the end, Middlebury’s fitness and depth at nearly all positions allowed the Blue to keep the collective foot firmly stomped on the gas pedal and pull away as the match progressed.
1st period score: 10-5
2nd period score: 21-0
3rd period score: 27-0
Final score: 58-7
The action marked the final tune-up before the National Playoffs next week in Pittsburgh. Many thanks to St. Mike’s for hosting and for a great day of rugby!
