Men's Rugby Earns Forfeit Win

Men's Rugby Earns Forfeit Win
By: Al Lucas
(CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky.) - This past weekend, the University of Southern Indiana forfeited its league match with Thomas More University. This brings the Saints' Fall record to 3-1.  This puts Thomas More tied for first in the East Division of the Midwest College Rugby Conference.
The team took advantage of an opportunity to play a non-league match against the local Cincinnati Rugby Football Club's second side. The outing was planned to give the Saints the chance to continue to play in competitive situations and to keep them match sharp. The Boys in Blue battled hard against the far more experienced men's club. But they came up short 15-12. The time on the pitch was well-spent as a great learning opportunity.
The Saints play away next week at Eastern Kentucky University in a cross-divisional match up.
