Quins to play Norfolk at Avonworth High School

The Pittsburgh Harlequins will play the Norfolk Rugby Club Saturday November 3rd at 1:00pm at Avonworth High School Football Field.  The Field is located at 304 Josephs Lane  Pittsburgh, PA 15237 (just off exit 8 on 279 north, Camp Horne Road).
The Harlequins (4-2), coming off a bye week after a loss to League leaders Potomac Athletic Club, are looking to strengthen their playoff picture with a win at home.  Norfolk, also coming off an idle weekend, are looking to keep their hopes of a spring playoff run alive- although they would need to be perfect the remainder of the season and have several teams stumble to make that happen.
Norfolk (1-4), has all but mathematically been eliminated from the playoffs, having lost close games to several top teams this fall.  Norfolk was scheduled to play the Maryland Exiles this past weekend in a game that has been postponed to the spring.
Due to 8 days of non-stop rain, the game has been moved from Founders Field to Avonworth High School Football Stadium in order to play on a synthetic surface.  Directions from Downtown Pittsburgh are:
  • Get on I-279 North for just under 7 miles.
  • Take exit 8 for Camp Horne Rd
  • Turn left onto Camp Horne Rd
  • Take the 1st right onto Josephs Ln
  • Football stadium is directly ahead 1/2 mile.
