NEW YORK, NY – In the final day of the D1 NRU Championship series, Mystic River fell to Old Blue in the Finals. With Old Blue holding onto a comfortable lead at halftime, the Mystics would not go down quietly as Adnan Kawuma and Joe Shurmaitis narrowed the margin for a final score of 33-15.
The Mystics finished second in the Northeast with an overall record of 8-2 and have secured home field advantage this Spring against the MARFU #3 seed (TBD).

This time around. Old Blue was ready, scoring three converted and blanking the Mystics 21-nil. A shutout win by NERFU rival, the Boston Irish Wolfhounds, will have the Mystics going head to head against New Haven to battle for third place in the NRU.
