Braddock takes Garfield at the Buzzer

Garfield traveled to Braddock Wednesday night to fill out the final regular season matchup.  Braddock got on the board first and never trailed the visiting Garfield team.  Showing great improvement as the season winds down, both teams played excellent rugby under clear skies and moderate temperatures.  With the clock almost at full time, Garfield found some space and tied the game.  On the ensuing kickoff Braddock recovered the ball and put together a nice sequence to score the go ahead try, just as the referee signaled full time.

BraddockThe B-side developmental match was another great match, with both teams showing great improvement by their younger squads.  In a very close competition, the visiting Garfield team edged the Braddock team.

Both Teams will finish the season Saturday at Founders Field for the Pittsburgh Harlequins Youth Rugby Championship from 11-1pm.  All four program sites from Braddock, Garfield, Hazelwood and Larimer will represent both A and B side teams at the event.
