Youth was on display for both sides Friday evening in the annual Development (Devos) vs Buffalo match. The teams combined for over 100 points as the BRC prevailed 61-40.
The Devos has been a function of the Buffalo Rugby Club for over 10 years. The last 6 years the team has played a Canadian club prior to being BRC guests at a June international in Toronto. Rugby Canada spoiled those plans this year by playing Scotland in Ottawa. In place of that attraction, Buffalo has scheduled the Empire Upstate Mens Allstars to play a Buffalo Under 23 team in Delaware Park June 23. The Devos will be the core of that team.
BRC had a 38-19 lead at halftime but the score closed to 33-38 before BRC pulled away. 42 players participated. Devos coached by Ron Astridge, managed by Jack Schweigel. BRC coached by Lex Maccubbin.
