This past Saturday, the Division 1 Mystic River team hosted Life University for a Homecoming Atlantic Cup match. The Mystics avenged their 7-88 loss from 2015 by defeating Life 43-17 at Pine Banks Park. The Division 2 Mystic Barbarians slipped up again, losing their second match of the season 19-36 at Portland in a muddy and rainy game. The Barbarians now stand at 5-2 on the season.
AMESBURY, MA – The Mystic Barbarians demolished Portland by a score of 59-24 in their D2 playoff match this morning, and secured their place in the NERFU D2 Championship match. The team will be facing Newport at 10:30am tomorrow, Sunday May 1 at New England Sports Park, Amesbury, MA to see who claims the NERFU D2 Championship title.
The match should be an absolute cracker, as the two teams fought to a 33-33 draw in the fall, but the Mystics will be looking to extend their unbeaten 10-0-1 season all the way to the national championships.
Let’s get out and make sure the Barbarians have huge home support tomorrow in this must-win match!
