Mystic River Beats South Shore in Season Opener

MALDEN, MA – The Mystic River Old Boys started the day on a positive note with Old Boy man of the match Ben Wallace featuring strongly in a 21-14 victory. The A-side kicked off and immediately started to dominate the game, with two quick tries to take the score to 14-0. However, the boys gave up far too many penalties, especially in the tackle, leaving the half time score at 14-0 despite dominating the game. The boys collected themselves in the second half and gave away fewer penalties to retain more of the ball and scored five unanswered tries in the second half to walk away with a 47-0 win. The B side did not fare as well in their 10-19 loss, but a number of players put in strong performances.
