Mystic River Wins Monmouth Sevens

The third leg of the Men’s Northeast Sevens was won by Mystic River Rugby Club with a 26-17 victory over Old Blue 26-17.Fairfield Yankees were in third place with Mystic River 2 in fourth.

The Men’s Northeast Sevens Standings have Old Blue in first place with 63 points, Mystic River in second with 60 points, and the Fairfield Yankees in third place with 49 points. It appears that Old Blue and Mystic River will represent the Northeast in the USA Club Sevens Nationals. The Fairfield Yankees would need to win the Saratoga Sevens on July 20 with either Old Blue falling below 6th place or Mystic River falling below 5th place for Fairfield to claim a spot.

Should Mystic River win at Saratoga with Old Blue second, the teams would be tied for first place in the Northeast Sevens standings.
