Sloppy Conditions Don't Slow Niagara

By Jordan Marrs

A rainy day up on Monteagle Ridge did not hinder the Niagara rugby too badly. As they started their winning streak of 3 games defeating Fredonia at home 24-5

Niagara was better able to overcome the elements than their counterparts and maintained a lead despite leaving points on the field they are used to scoring.

Dave Piraino was able to find his second try in as many games by breaking off a scrum early in the match. Josh Carey also scored a try off of a set scrum, cutting back and finding an open lane.

Your Man of the Match was Julian Sharp, whom picked up 2 scores on tough-nosed runs leaving many broken tackles in his wake.

Niagara's pack imposed its will on its Fredonia counterparts, excelling when it came to wheeling scrums.

Niagara is now 3-0 on the season and will head on the road to Ithaca for their next match.
