MIT unable to take the shine off of Old Gold

Teams:MIT vs Old Golf RFC
Played:04/21/2018 @ MIT
Score: 25 - 36 MIT loss

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, MIT hosted Old Gold RFC at Briggs Field for their first home game of the season. It was a beautiful but slightly windy day. The two teams tied the last time they met in the fall. Knowing the game might be won by a hair, Sasha made sure to have his flowing locks tied back by the EMT / stylist at the field.

Familiar face helps spoil MIT’s day

Teams:MIT vs Village Lions RFC
Played:04/14/2018 @ Randall's Island, NYC
Score: 19 - 31 MIT loss

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, MIT traveled to Randall’s Island in New York City to take on the Village Lions. It was a beautiful spring day with the sun shining, the flowers starting to bloom, and the smell of a local sewage plant hovering over the field. Heavy traffic and low numbers forced MIT to start the game with just 14 players due to the team’s match secretary scheduling an early kickoff at the crack of 4:00 PM.

MIT fall to Boston RFC in inaugural match at Union Point Sports Complex

Teams:MIT vs Boston RFC
Played:04/07/2017 @ Weymouth, MA
Score: 12 - 37 MIT loss

On April 7, 2018, MIT traveled to Weymouth, MA to start their spring season vs. Boston RFC. Coming off of a brutal spring training where practices were held in rain, snow and sleet, MIT was excited to get a decent day of weather to kick off the season, only to find out that they were playing in a giant bubble. Luckily the bubble arena was a brand new facility featuring one of the softer turf fields MIT has played on. This was Boston RFC’s first game at their new home, and there were 2 matches leading up to the MIT-Boston clash.
