BWRFC Takes on the 7s National Championships in Denver, CO / by Allie Brouckman

The Boston Women’s Rugby Football Club competed at the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championships on August 11 and 12 and the 12 players that represented the team made us so proud! After a tough summer of competition, Boston Women’s earned the 2nd Northeast Seed into the Championship, just behind NY’s Old Blue Women’s Team, and returned to the championship for the second year in a row. Tight play in the pool round including a 17-15 victory over Chicago and a 14-12 loss to NOVA led Boston into the playoff rounds playing some of the best 7s ever. Boston advanced to the Shield final and lost in a redemption match to Chicago – but the team grew exponentially and competed well at the highest levels of competition. 

In another victory – we had an tremendous summer with all our 7s players. With collegiate players from BU, BC, UConn and other area teams, as well as an overwhelming increase in numbers, we consistently fielded two or three sides at summer tournaments and succeeded in building some of the best 7s in the region. We’re so proud of our Summer 2016 7s accomplishments and can’t wait for next summer to play again!
