The DC Furies 7s teams had another stellar performance this weekend at the Lehigh Valley 7s Tournament in Bethlehem PA on Saturday. Furies Blue and Furies Gold played some really strong rugby and have the hardware to prove it! See below for Coach Sue’s recap.
The Furies’ Blue team defeated Morris, Keystone and Philly A in pool play. In the Cup semi-final, the Blue team defeated Harrisburg, before facing a formidable NRU select-side team (stacked with three 7s Eagles) for the championship. The Blue team put on a tremendous display of mental toughness and heart as they used outstanding teamwork, ball handling and speed to claim the victory, 17-5.
The Furies’ Gold team defeated the Philly B team and Severn River in pool play, prior to succumbing to the NRU team in a hard-fought battle. The Gold team then thrashed the Philly A team to win the Plate Championship. In doing so, the Gold team put on a defensive clinic, demonstrating the perfect balance between patience and ruthlessness, and capitalizing on every Philly mistake.
Way to go Furies!
