Mystic River Rugby Club has secured their spot in an unprecedented 5th straight USA Rugby DI National Sweet 16 by defeating Schuylkill River 28-25 at Pine Banks Park Saturday.

Led by the strong foot of flyhalf Derrick Roma and strong running by flanker Joe Shurmaitis, the Mystics were able to secure a 15 point lead with about 20 minutes remaining when Schuylkill came surging back to cut the lead to 3. But the Mystics were able to retain possession and run out the clock for the win.
