GLENDALE, CO – The Mystics managed to stick out the full 80 minutes against the Austin Blacks in a back and forth contest that was up for grabs until the final minutes of the game. The final score was 45-33 to the Mystics, but the match was an incredibly close contest until the Mystics scored in the dying minutes to put them out of Austin reach. It was an absolute rollercoaster of a match where both teams had momentum and the lead at various stages. In case you missed it, the full match is currently available online at The Rugby Channel.

Mystics Lose Heartbreaker to Old Blue in Cup QF

DENVER, CO – The Mystics fought for all their worth in the National 7s Quarterfinal last night, but went down 17-19 to Old Blue. The Mystics held a 12-7 lead at the half, but the only difference between the two sides was their style of play – the Mystics were spreading the ball wide in search of gaps, while Old Blue were bulling it up the middle once they got within striking range. The result was that the Mystics couldn’t convert two of their tries from out wide, and lost the lead when Old Blue scored under the posts with seconds left to play. The Mystics managed to bring the ball back to midfield before conceding a penalty, allowing Old Blue to kick the ball Ito touch and claim their spot in the semis.

The Mystics will be back in action at 12:40pm EDT today, as they take on last year’s champions, the Seattle Saracens, in the Plate semifinal on Field 4. The match will be streamed online – let’s get behind the Mystics as they aim to close out strong!

The Club 7s Champs Are Here!

After a month off, the Mystics are ready to compete for the 7s National Championship this weekend. The Mystics will be in action at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver, CO today and tomorrow, and all of the matches will be streamed live at www.therugbychannel.tv

The Mystics have the following pool matches scheduled for today (note that links won’t be active until matches are underway):

  • 12:20pm EDT – Atlanta Old White – Field 4 watch
  • 3:20pm EDT – Santa Monica – Field 4 watch
  • 6:20pm EDT – Chicago Lions – Field 2 watch

The Mystics will also have a quarter final match to play later in the evening, which will kick off between 9:20pm and 10:20pm EDT depending on the results in pool play.

While the Mystics are already preparing in Denver, we are still raising funds to offset the cost of the trip, especially for the players who brought home the national 15s trophy in June. If you’d like to donate, please visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mystic-river-7s-is-back-in-the-dance-sports and make your contribution.

Let’s get behind our boys in blue as they chase the nationals double!

Support the Mystic 7s at Nationals

MALDEN, MA – For the second straight year, the Mystic 7s squad played through some of the toughest 7s competition in the country en route to the 7s National Championships in Denver, CO over the weekend of August 13-14.

The Monsters from Malden are looking to improve on their top 3 finish in the 2015 tournament, and see if we can claim a 15s and 7s double for the Mystics. As always, competing on the road comes at a high cost, especially in the wake of our Championship-winning trip to Colorado in June. We are hoping that all members of Mystic Nation can contribute some small amount of money towards the trip. Continue reading
