Rockaway Rugby Scores For Father’s Day
Rockaway U15 defeated a very large and talented Long Island U15 RFC in the finals of the Annual Rockaway Rugby 7s Tournament on Saturday, June 15th. Rockaway entered championship game witha2winand1 loss record. Their only loss came against the same Long Island team that Rockaway would go on to defeat in the finals.
The Young Fisheads strategy was to spread the field against their opponents in the finals to utilize their speed against the giant forwards of Long Island. The strategy proved successful as Rockaway defeated the Long Island Colts by a score of 27 -22.
Rockaway U13 also had a great day, but was defeated in the finals by a terrific Greenwich Connecticut U13 side.
The Rockaway team extended a special thanks to John McCann and John “Tippy” Tipaldo for organizing and running a great tourney.
They also thanked Dave McGowan, Timmy Kelly, Arthur “Ooch” Boyland and John McCann for setting up the fields all day Friday and making the tournament such a success.
