Beautiful day for rugby with sun and temperatures in the 70's. Monadnock opened the scoring with an unconverted try in the 3d minute and a converted try in the 7th minute. Ironside got on the board with a penalty kick in the 12th minute, but Monadnock scored two tries, one converted, in the 17th and 21st minutes. Both teams put in converted tries before teh 30th minute. Ironside closed out the scoring for the half with an unconverted try in the 32d minute, giving a half time score of 31 to 15.. Monadnock's kick off for the second half failed to go 10 meters and Ironside took advantage of the subsequent scrum to put in a converted try in the 41st minute. Monadnock settled and finished the half with 3 converted tries. Both sides played well with some outstanding efforts by individual players including a hat trick for Monadnock's rookie outside center in his first game and an outstanding performance by Ironside's fly half who accounted for all 22 of their points. It was a pleasure to be part of this game between two sides that enjoy playing each other with good sportsmanship and in the best spirit of rugby.
