Irish Cultural Center Canton, MA 12:00 P.M. - In wet windy conditions for most of this match, Brown dominated the Princeton forwards for a solid victory on Saturday. Due to the unavailability of the Brown Rugby Field on the day, Brown hosted Princeton at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton, Massachusetts. This facility with changing rooms and several fields, all meticulously maintained, was a terrific venue for the match. As Brown departed Providence for Canton in bright sunshine, the sky to the northeast was ominous and we were not disappointed as a deluge of rain for the next two hours resulted in very wet and slippery footing for the match. Although this weekend ended the 80 degree summer conditions we have been experiencing, the mid-50’s temperatures were ideal for the players.

Left wing Alan Swierczynski showed speed and aggressiveness with three tries and solid defense, Quinn Larkin was solid at flanker and rookie prop Sanoj Allen made good progress at loose head prop.
