Boston 13s head to playoffs

The Boston 13s have rounded out the 2015 regular season with a comfortable 64-16 win over rivals the Rhode Island Rebellion. 

The win moves the 13s to 7-1 on the season, their best ever record and it clinches the North East divisional title. Although the offense ran in 11 tries, it wasn’t a great performance by any means. Coach Robin Peers was far from happy with the completion rate and some sloppy defending. 

Leading the scoring was long serving winger Ryan Forgione who scored three on the day. Dustin Cooper and Urban Iyo both crossed for doubles. Forwards Jonpaul Davis, Curtis Goddard, Kane Bentley and Mike Elias also got their names on the scoresheet. Prolific try scorer Fullback Liam Georgetown strangely didn’t cross to add to his tally, but did kick 10 from 11 on the day to still give him a 20 point haul 

All eyes now turn to this Saturday’s playoff game as Boston 13s will face off against the Rhode Island Rebellion, as they won a back and forth play in game to kick off their playoff run against the closely matched Brooklyn Kings 54-34. 

With the win the Rhode Island Rebellion will be making the trip to The Irish Cultural Center in Canton, MA to play the Boston 13s this Saturday August 8th at 1:00 PM. Admittance is free for all ages although donations will be collected for our affiliate charity ‘Homes For Our Troops’.
