Old Blue Comeback Puts Them into Playoffs
Clubs - Men's DI Clubs


Trailing by the score of 12-0 until seventeen minutes into the second half on a bright sunny day, host Old Blue mounted a late comeback to defeat the visiting Boston Rugby Club 14-12 in a rather uninspiring game.

Old Blue’s points came via two tries by scrumhalf Nate Augsberger, both converted by flyhalf James Bird.

Under sunny skies with temperatures in the upper fifties, four penalty goals by center John Clogan were Boston’s only points and the only features of a rather uneventful first half.

Clogan opened Boston’s account in the fourth minute with a penalty goal from 30 meters, 3-0. He missed a penalty attempt in the tenth minute, but Clogan extended Boston’s lead to 9-0 with penalty goals in the 16th and 25th minutes.

Infractions by Boston in the 27th and 32nd minutes, gave Old Blue an opportunity to narrow the visitor’s lead, but OB flyhalf James Bird was off the mark on both of his penalty attempts.

Boston went into the half with a 12-0 lead following a 22-meter, sideline penalty goal by John Clogan in the 40th minute.

Old Blue flyhalf James Bird missed a long, angled penalty attempt one minute after the restart, and Boston retained its 12-0 lead.
Old Blue’s comeback finally began seventeen minutes into the second half.  At that point scrumhalf Nate Augsberger touched down at the conclusion of a 45 meter attacking effort, which emanated from a quick-tap near midfield. James Bird’s conversion narrowed Boston’s lead to 12-7.

Scrumhalf Nate Augsberger’s second try, following a penalty 15 meters from Boston’s line, tied the score as time was running out in the 44th minute. James Bird’s subsequent conversion gave host Old Blue the 14-12 win.

The victory means Old Blue finished 2nd in the league and will host Life University in a national play-in for a spot in the USA Rugby quarterfinals.

Also in the Northeast, the Boston Irish Wolfhounds, which recently had to forfeit two victories due to an administrative error, beat White Plains 38-36, and NYAC won by forfeit over Middlesex when the latter's field was deemed unplayable - NYAC had already secured 1st regardless.

Sheeran Field hosted this "Battle of the Bridge" challenge match. O-Club kicked off with the wind and controlled the ball, driving deep into the SFGG territory with quick ball from the breakdown, and at four minutes OC hooker Andrew Cook opened the scoring with a try from a rolling maul.

Keegan Englebrecht made the difficult conversion into the cross breeze, and the 7-0 lead.  

On the restart, the play continued at a high pace, with the Olympic Club maintaining possession until the seven-minute mark when SFGG hooker Neil Barrett saw an opening along the sideline, snatched up the ball and scored in the corner.

The pace and solid defenses kept the ball in play, both sides hitting their lines, both defenses staying solid.  At the 14-minute mark, Olympic Club flanker Dan Houhgton finished a forwards' movement from a scrum to score. Englebrecht converted to take O-Club to a 14-5 lead.

Minutes later SFGG controlled an Olympic Club lineout deep in their own end, and the backline of Tai Enosa, Samisone Pone and Mile Pulu, and winger Peter Moala moved the ball to the other end.

Recovering a ruck ball, Pulu burst up the middle, forced two missed tackles and fended of Colin Hawley to score close to the posts. Rouse missed this conversion, closing the score to SFGG 10, O-Club 14.

The game continued to be evenly contested with a majority of the play in the SFGG end of the field. At the 28-minute mark, Barrett broke free down the sideline to score his second try in nearly the same place as the first. Rouse converted this one, and SFGG took the lead for the first time 17-14. The half ended that way, with both sides missing opportunities to score, thwarted by solid defenses.

With the wind at their back, SFGG wasted little time recovering the kickoff and seeing Ricky Reynolds, playing No. 8, lead the forwards to the goal line at the 41-minute mark. Rouse converted.

Tom Rooke, pairing with Brendan Daley in the second row today, burst up the middle to score under the posts. He was followed into the try zone over the next 20 minutes by Rouse, Moala, and Bruce Thomas before Colin Hawley was able to break several tackles to score for the Olympic Club. Englebrect's conversion brought the score to 52-21.

Lock James Lik scored the last try for O-Club, while Tom Rooke got his second, converted by Peter Moala.

The final SFGG 64, Olympic Club 28.

SFGG virtually assured themselves of the second playoff spot, behind Glendale who clinched the top spot.
