BOSTON, MA – It was an inevitable outcome. When two undefeated squads take the field, only one can remain undefeated. Unfortunately for the Mystics, it was Boston who took that honor. It was a gruelling back and forth defensive match up between the top two teams in New England.
The Mystics were able to shut down Boston’s initial attack, but a penalty in range of the posts would give Boston first blood and an early lead. This would also be the only score of the first half. Late into the second half Boston let loose with a kick down field which was recovered for a try that would put the game out of reach for the Mystics. Mystic River finished the season with a 6-1 record and despite the loss, will enter the playoffs as the number one seed in New England.
PINE BANKS – Mystic River came out of the gate firing on all cylinders with several tries scored in the first few minutes against an Albany side that never laid down. Again the Mystics displayed outstanding defense to hold Albany to only one try scored for 7 points. Final score 60-7 as the Mystics clinched the #1 NERFU seed for the 2007-08 division one playoffs.
Jamie Green, Brett Willis, Molibi Maphanyane and Parnell Adam each touched the ball down twice, while Kyle Winter and Carrick Pell added a try of their own to the Mystic tally. Pat Doherty went 50% from the field, slotting 5 of 10 through the uprights.
PINE BANKS – On a day which would see three action packed rugby matches take place at the Banks, the Mystic Old Boys took the field against the Providence Old Cocks. The Mystics were able to keep Providence on the defensive throughout much of the match, setting up some great rugby to show the younger generations that they still had the stuff. Tries by Stefan and Whitey would keep the Gray Gulls in the game, however the score would remain level at match’s end. The Mystic Old Boys are undefeated this season with a record of 4-1-0.
