Finally, Perfect Rugby Weather

Spring has arrived in Washington, DC and none too soon as the women’s rugby season marches on.  In our seventh week of the season, the Furies will play the Maryland Stingers for a Division 2 matrix match this Saturday, and on Sunday the team will host Beantown for friendly WPL and B-side matches.

Last week, the Furies’ Division 2 players traveled to North Carolina to play Raleigh.  Beautiful weather and a gorgeous rugby complex were the redeeming points of an otherwise challenging rugby day. Venom excelled on their home turf and beat the Furies 65-0.  After making the 5-hour drive back to DC, the Furies hit the road again on Sunday to play at Frederick in a re-scheduled match. Taking the frustrations from the previous day’s loss, the Washington Women brought their aggression to Frederick and brought home a 12-0 win.
