Location: Pitch is located behind the school.

New London County: 39    Saratoga Rugby Club: 42

What a great match! This clash of the (NERFU D3) titans did not disappoint. Saratoga (7-0) opened with a quick try and put New London (5-2) on notice. Shortly thereafter, a New London chaser caught his own kickoff clean, offloaded to his captain for a try, and--game on! Great attitude and hard hitting from both sides--lots of running, passing, and scoring. The difference-maker on the field was Saratoga's #10, who relieved pressure many times with his boot, made great decisions, and generally controlled the game whenever he touched the ball. Great credit to New London, who fought back from a 32-17 halftime deficit to win the 2d half. They fell short, but demonstrated great discipline, skill, team depth, and courage on the day. This was an absolute pleasure to participate in and both sides should be proud of their performance.
