SPRINGFIELD, MA – Mystic River took it up a notch from last year and entered the Qualifier bracket at this year’s Springfield 7s Tourney. Falling to Boston in the first match 12-7, the Mystics were able to bounce back to deafeat NYAC 26-14 and move on to face Long Island in the Semi Final round, with the New York club edging past the Mystics 17-10 to move on to the final. Mystic River placed 4th.
In the Open Division, the self proclaimed “Mystic Exiles” showed a vast improvement from the week prior, going 2-2 on the day. With 20+ years of age between the youngest rookie and the oldest grizzled veteran, the Mystics finished the day strong with a 29-0 “pay back” win over Worcester for 5th place.
