MIT B lose out to Seacoast

Teams:MIT vs Seacoast
Played:09/08/2012 @ MIT
Score: 10 - 29 MIT loss

MIT’s B side lined out to face Seacoast on Saturday in their first outing of the year.
The home side started well, getting dominance at scrum time and working their way into Seacoast territory. As in the A game however, Seacoast held supremacy at the breakdown and their turnovers proved crucial in the opening period leading to a pair of early tries.
MIT responded with a try of their own to leave the half time score 17-5.

MIT defeated in pre-season

Teams:MIT vs Imperial College
Played:09/02/2012 @ MIT
Score: 19 - 31 MIT loss

MIT began their Fall 2012 Season with a home challenge game against Imperial College (London) on Sunday. The game was played in excellent late summer conditions with a solid surface lending itself to good running rugby.
Imperial got the better of the early exchanges as MIT took a long time to settle. MIT failed to control their own possession leading to handling errors and allow Imperial to stay in their territory for much of the first quarter.

MIT were handed their first loss of the season in a hard fought contest that was closer than the score line suggests.

Despite a failed conversion they kept the visitors on the back foot hitting the gain line with speed and forcing a couple of line breaks to touch down for a second in under 10 minutes.

MIT A keep their unbeaten streak intact

Teams:MIT vs Portland
Played:04/21/2012 @ MIT
Score: 50 - 26 MIT win

It was a picture perfect day for rugby this Saturday, although a tad warm for the players, the spectators certainly enjoyed the warm spring weather. MIT came out raging, looking to keep their unbeaten spring record intact and seeking revenge over a narrow loss to Portland last spring (in a snow storm!). Two quick tries by MIT, with great runs from Frank O. and support play by halfback Jason S. set the tone for the match. It looked like MIT was going to run away with the game until two costly mistakes from risky offloads led to two run away tries from Portland.
