U-23 Results vs Niagara B

The Buffalo Rugby Club U-23 team opened the weekend with their first match on Saturday against the Niagara Wasps in Niagara Ont. The young guns from Buffalo came out to a strong start and steamrolled a the much more experienced Niagara side by a score of 52-25. With the Wasps playing with a team composed of many familiar faces from their first side, and Buffalo starting the match with 7 players that had played previously in Thursday evening's Under -19 match, no one could have possibly anticipated Buffalo's success on the pitch.

The Buffalo forwards led the way with dominating rucking and ball control. Brian Ries (Buffalo) led the buffalo scoring attack with three tries, Additional tries were scored by Dennis Lobosco (Buffalo)and Mike Hall(UB). Captain Danny Ryan(Buffalo)led all scorers by converting 7 of 8 conversions and adding a penalty kick. Fitz Adams (UB), Sean Kuhankek(KE)also scored for the backline.

Practice will take place on Tuesday June 27th, and again on Thursday July 6th, before the team takes on Burlington on Saturday July 8th in Canada. There is a match scheduled for both the Under 19's and Under 23's.
