Belmont High School Rugby Club in State Finals

date 5/21/2014

The Belmont High School Rugby Club defeated Boston College High School 24-17 last night on Harris Field. 

With roughly 200 fans in attendance it was an electric atmosphere and the Club would like to thank all the faculty & staff, students and parents  that came out to support.

Captained by Nick Pearson, Belmont used their pace and defense to hold off a furious counter charge by BC High. 

With the win Belmont advance for the second straight year to the Division 1 Mass. Youth Rugby Organization Championship. Like last year Belmont will be playing Bishop Hendricken High School. 

The game will be held at Fort Devens State Park on the “Antietam Field” Saturday, May 24th. Kickoff is 2:30pm and admission is free. 

The early forecast is for ideal rugby conditions – mid 60’s and sun – perfect for a family outing to support these fine student athletes.
