NRU Playoffs: Mystics Take 2nd Place in NRU

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).

Playoffs: Mystics Fall to Old Blue 21-0

NEWPORT, RI – As the fog rolled in off Narragansett Bay, the Mystic River Rugby Club took on METNY’s top seeded Old Blue RFC in round one of the NRU playoff seeding tournament.

However, it was a much different New York side than the Mystics faced in last year’s tournament where the Mystics sailed to an easy 61-3 victory.

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.
