10/13/2012, Amherst at ECSU

Submitted by Andrew M. Mowry on Tuesday, 8/13/2013, at 4:42 PM

On a deceptively sunny Saturday morning (it was real Cold), the Amherst squad formed up in the tennis court lots to embark on the one-and-a-half hour drive to Willimantic to face up against the undefeated ECSU Warriors, putting their own 18 game winning streak on the line. The new Head Coach, Kent Newcomb, had been running the Lord Jeffs into the ground the past week in preparation for what he knew would be the tightest match of the regular season.

The week of practice before the April 30th home matchup against Williams was all business.  The injuries and absences from the previous two weeks cleared up and Amherst’s full squad was finally fit and ready play. The tackle dummies donning Williams jerseys saw extensive use all week, and by Friday the team was rearing to have a go at the hated Williams “White Dogs”, who last fall bested Amherst in Williamstown.

Here is the report from Saturday. Cheers.

This past Saturday’s match was an early 11:00 AM away game at Wesleyan.  The team was missing the starting fullback, 8-man, inside center, and open-side flanker, which allowed the depth an opportunity to prove their mettle. Because of awful weather conditions, it was dubious as to whether or not the match could occur at all, but the Amherst boys made the drive anyway, only getting confirmation that the match was a go about halfway to Middleton.

This weekend the Amherst boys traveled down to Hartford to face off against the Hartford University Hawks.  The large campus, stellar facilities, and 40 plus member Hartford squad were an imposing sight for Amherst, who was traveling with weak numbers.  The absence of veteran Thomas Burnett at outside center meant that rookie freshman Julian Scott would start his first game for Amherst.  Rookie prop Chris McHale was also out for the weekend, giving sophomore rookie Tim Poterba the start.

The Amherst College Rugby Football Club’s first game of the spring 2011 season kicked off on Saturday March 26th.  The opposition, Castleton State, bested the Amherst squad in a heartbreaker last fall by a late scored try, so they boys had a lot to prove going into the match.

After 6 games of warm-up for the biggest game of the season, the Amherst College Rugby Football Club faced its annual bout against the Williams College squad in a match that was supposed to be played a semester earlier. The rivalry game was canceled in the spring ’09 season due to Williams’ suspension from the New England Rugby Football Union for incident involving burning the jersey a member of their team was wearing during a social event. Needless to say, 12 months was too long for the Jeffs to not face the Ephs.
