Our rugby team played Fordham preparatory school on Wednesday, April.4. Fordham is a private team in the Bronx, New York who traveled to Texas to play against different competition, with our rugby team as the last game on their schedule, and it was one to remember.

After the sub-varsity team lost their game against St.Thomas, It was time for the Varsity teams to steal the show. The game started with Fordham kicking off to us. The ball of kicked to senior flanker Nathan White, who knocked on the ball. The ball of then scooped up a Fordham to take possession. A penalty was called on us that led to a lineup that they won and pushed it in for the first try of the game. They converted the kick, and like that we were down 7-0. Our Warriors bounced back with Senior prop Julius Kelly try from 7 meters out, followed by an unconverted kick to make the game 7-5. The rest of the half took a seesaw effect. Trading tries between both teams. Making the score at half 17-17

The second half was a different story, Fordham started off hot putting up 2 tries out the gate. Making the Warriors comeback seem more unlikely, and it was. The Warriors tried to outscore Fordham in the second half, but the game ended with the final score being 41-35, Fordham’s win. Tries were scored by Junior lock Uriel Romero and Junior lock Lane Rouse but it was too late to win the game. Although they did not end they way they wanted it to, it was an exciting friendly match that the boys could learn from. As they go back into cup play with a match against the Woodlands Thursday, April. 9.
