Brooklyn Rugby Club endured a couple of tough four-point losses on both the men’s and women’s sides this weekend. The men fell 23-19 to their long-time division rivals, Rockaway Rugby Club, while the women lost, 18-14, to the Hartford Wild Roses of Connecticut. The men’s team battled back and forth all day, first falling behind 7-0 after an early try from Rockaway’s fly half, and then answering with two first-half tries from Mario Avocato and Craig Mackenzie, along with two successful conversions from Gennaro Anzalone to lead 14-12 at halftime. Following two successful penalty conversions and an additional second half try from Rockaway, Brooklyn narrowed the lead to 23-19 after a phenomenal acrobatic diving try by Toby Tornay with just minutes remaining in the game. The conversion attempt was missed by Anzalone. Brooklyn attempted one final surge against the staunch Rockaway defense in the final minute and a half, but it proved to be too little too late as the whistle sounded and the home team prevailed. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn women traveled north to face the Hartford Wild Roses Women’s Rugby Club. The competition proved difficult, but Brooklyn’s strong defense kept Hartford from scoring on several occasions. Hartford went up 3-0 early with a penalty conversion. Shortly thereafter, they added the game’s first try, but missed on the conversion attempt, going up 8-0. It was then Brooklyn’s turn to get on the board when veteran center Hanna Campbell intercepted a Hartford pass and returned it to make the score 8-5. Kyla Maxwell added the conversion just before halftime to trim the lead to 8-7 at the break. The second half scoring came predominantly from the Hartford side, going up 18-7 before Brooklyn’s eight man, Sarah Bepko, was awarded a penalty try due to an illegal high tackle. Erika Hernandez added the conversion to bring Brooklyn within four points. However that was all the scoring the Brooklyn women would add in the second half, as the Hartford women held on to secure the win at home. Next on the schedule for the men is a trip to Montauk on Saturday, September 20, for a 1 p.m. matchup. At the same time, the women will host the Beantown Rugby Club in Brooklyn.

The St. Joseph’s College men’s soccer got their 2014 campaign off to a solid start with some newcomers making their mark in a 4-0 shutout of The New School in their 2014 season opener on Thursday night at Calvert Vaux Park. Rookies Beka Goduadze notched a goal and dished an assist, while Benny Barrios had a goal and an assist of his own in a winning effort. St. Joseph’s scored just 5:10 into the game, where another rookie Pandeli Mano netted his first career goal, the eventual game winner, on a volley after a deflection in the box to grab the early lead. Three minutes into the second half, Goduadze registered his first career goal from a Barrio corner kick, heading in the service to the back post. Senior Raul Urshela padded the lead with a goal in the 52nd minute with the 25th goal of his career. Barrios capped the scoring, finding the back on the net from the top of the box in the 68th minute. Bears goalie Michael Miner tallied four saves in the win for his second career shutout. Up next for the Bears was their first home game of the season, hosting Fisher on Wednesday, September 17 in a doubleheader with the women.
