Guilford trounce Alumni

Guilford Quakers --33
Guilford Huberites --15

The Guilford College Quakers beat the Guilford Alumni Huberites this Saturday. The win was a hard fought one as while the alumni were lacking in athleticism they made up the difference with size, experience and dishonesty. The Alumni fielded 16 players for the first ten minutes giving them a slight advantage. The current Guilford squads speed and endurance would be too much for the old boys however. Sophomore flyhalf David Mckinley-Ward ran through the entire alumni team twice in a row touching down two tries, flanker Andrew Slater's speed proved too much for the alums as he ran nearly 80 meters for a try, and rookie Conner would also score his first try in the game. In a great display of sportsmanship, Senior eightman Matt Elverson selflessly passed the ball in the try zone to Senior scrummy Maximilian. The highlight of the game however was rookie/senior flanker Byron Myers laying out Coach Dan Hayden. All in all it was fine day of rugby and an exciting social game.
