9/16/17 Match Report vs. Wilmington RFC

2 months ago By Sean Lonsinger

Brandywine loses home opener in a tough match against Wilmington RFC

Again missing some key players, Brandywine opened the match well and displayed some promising upside. After 20 minutes of back and forth play, Wilmington held a 10-5 lead over BRFC. Along with good defensive play by Wilmington, some key mistakes and knock-ons hurt BRFC and Wilmington took a 20-5 lead at the half. Wilmington continued to take advantage of mistakes by BRFC and played great defense to widen their lead to 39-5. However, Brandywine fought well and didn't give up. In the final 10 minutes of the match, Brandywine scored two tries and a conversion bringing the final score to 17-39.

In the words of the great Vince Lombardi, "We didn't lose the game, we just ran out of time". Join us next Saturday (9/23/17) at 1:00 pm for an away match at South Jersey RFC!
