29 October 2016

Location: Fletcher Farm Field, 3628 VT Route 103, Proctorsville, VT 05153

Black River: 54    Rutland: 12

A cold, gray, wet day, with a snowy and puddled pitch, did nothing to prevent two proud, local teams from coming together and playing. Despite infrequent showers and some frayed tempers, the game progressed swiftly to the end of the first half, with Black River leading by five converted tries. In the second, the Rutland answered with two valiant and well won tries, one conversion and plenty of grit. Black River reasserted dominance with three further tries and two conversions. Both sides finished with relief and, nursing a few minor bumps and scrapes, retired to the local Irish pub for a well deserved thawing out.

Referee: Simon Keeling
