Guilford 15, Triad 14

This Saturday Guilford Men's Rugby kicked off their fall friendly season with an improbable 15-14 home win over Greensboro's DIII elite men's team, Triad Rugby. In what can only be described as a team effort Guilford dispelled rumors of a lack of organization and preparation this year after losing 8 graduating seniors in May. Senior fullback Max George touched-down two tries and junior outside center David McKindley-Ward converted one and added a penalty to the tally in one of the most grueling matches in recent Guilford rugby history. George and senior flanker Kevin Smithey, who played like a man possessed on the weak side, were awarded Men of the Match.

Full match report to follow. Thanks to everyone who came to support, hope to y'all for this coming weekend's home game against Elon!
