Spring Season 2015

posted in: Team Updates | 0
AURFC kicked the season off with an opener against Georgetown B in the bitter cold. American University fielded a mixed A/B side, and came out on top with a 46 - 12 victory. Strong running in the backline and consistent support/dominant scrumming from the forwards helped bring AURFC the win. This weekend AURFC will be competing in the Four Leafs Rugby Tournament in NYC. Sixteen teams will compete for the trophy, including Cornell, Boston University and Ithaca. This will be a great opportunity for new players to have a run against competitive sides. We hope to see any local alumni who want to watch a match as well! Games commence at 8AM on Saturday the 21st, and conclude at 7PM that evening. The following week we will be competing in the local Cherry Blossom Tournament at┬áRosecroft Raceway in MD. Teams travel from across the country to compete in this tournament, and we are going to make them regret doing so. Finally, and most importantly, the annual Alumni Match is on Saturday, April 18th @ 2PM on Massachusetts Avenue soccer field by AU's campus. Can't wait to crush the old boys. Below┬áis a picture of our full schedule!   1601391_10153296389656874_5542955691231318858_n
