In a rare weekend that sees both sides at home, the Furies will host WPL newcomer, Beantown RFC in a double header. The WPL matchup will be followed by a B-side match for a Furies D2 squad too hungry to take a bye weekend.

The Furies have been hitting it hard in practice this week, focusing on fitness, dictating contact and defense.

Rookies Jennifer Konish, Schuyler Brown, Amanda “Finny” Fins, Kelly Maranchuck and Caitlin Gibney will make their first start for the Furies D2 squad, while some vets will take advantage of the B-side match to play new positions.

Here’s the starting lineup for WPL:
