Hope you all had an excellent Memorial Day Weekend celebrating and remembering those that have served the United States of America. On Saturday, Mystic River Rugby Club played two matches to open up the New England Free Jacks’ Military Appreciation Day, where the Free Jacks would ultimately win their match, over the Toronto Arrows, 14-12.
Last week, Mystic River travelled to NYC to compete in the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championship with aspirations to capture both the 15s National Championship and 7s National Championship. Mystic River had two great days of fast-paced rugby action!
In the 2018 USA Club Rugby 7s National Championship Quarter Finals, Mystic River Rugby Club was down 17-5 v. Metropolis Rugby Club with 4 minutes left on the clock when an EPIC COMEBACK unfolded .
Jared Collinson put down a try to get it to 17-10 and then Adnan Kawuma put down a try to tie the match up. With only time left for one more kick off, the final sequence of play unfolded with Akinola Raymond giving solid defense and Christopher Frazier putting down the game winning try!
Unfortunately, the Mystics were unable to use the momentum in the Semi-Finals dropping the match to the eventual Gold Medal Winning Bulldogs Rugby 7-15.
But in traditional Mystic fashion, the team bounced back in the Bronze Medal Match against the Denver Barbarians. Standout player of the tournament, 19 year-old Jerone Pantor sealed the victory against Denver with a 50m try. Pantor had two tries in the match along with Sam Sirrel’s try. This gave Mystic River a 19-12 victory capturing the Bronze Medal in the National 7s Tournament!
