PINE BANKS – The First XV took the field this past Saturday and wasted no time as they stormed down the pitch and scored on their first possession. For the first 20 minutes, the rugged Mystic forwards were too much for the Old Gold Defenders as they rarely missed the gain line and dominated on attack. Tactical kicking and solid defense by the Mystic backline also disrupted any of Old Gold’s momentum. While Old Gold had been within 5 meters of a try on a couple occasions the relentless Mystic tacklers would not let them in. The match finished, Mystic 32 – Old Gold 0.
PINE BANKS – The Mystics came out strong this past Saturday against a playoff bound Worcester side. The tough, scrappy forwards led the charge, man-handling the opposition. This outright dominance in and around the rucks forced our opponents to tighten up their defense and the Mystic backline was given room to showcase their talent scoring multiple tries on the outside for a final tally of 42-14. This was an important game, but the taste of victory has only sparked a deeper hunger in the Blue for another win.
