In a hard, physical game NYAC rallied to score a late try and salvage a 13-13 try with visiting Metropolis on Saturday. The cold, windy, and at times snowy conditions, didn't exactly lend itself to attacking rugby but regardless of the weather each team had their fair share of opportunities and the draw was an accurate representation of how the match played out.
NYAC was the first to score on a penalty before taking an 8-0 lead thanks to a Mike Petri try. Metropolis scored not long after to make the score 8-5 at the end of the half. The Minnesota side then took a 10-8 lead shortly into the second half. They kept the pressure on afterward and attacked the NYAC line for about 15 minutes but could only come up with a penalty. NYAC then scored in the corner with no time left on the clock to even up the match.
