Aspen Take Ruggerfest Over Misfits

The Gentlemen of Aspen have claimed their home tournament after beating the Misfits at the Aspen Ruggerfest last weekend. It was the 48th year for the tournament and once again it featured a plethora of teams in men's open, masters (over 35), women's master, cronies, codgers, and fogies, and much more.

The Gentlemen of Aspen were one of the strongest teams all weekend using their club affiliations to full effect. Santa Monica star Harry Bennett turned out for the side and was instrumental scoring tries, penalties, and drop goals for Aspen. Also turning out for Aspen was standout James Aldridge. In the final at Wagner Stadium Aspen led 22-7 at halftime before adding to that in the second half for a 51-27 win. It was their first win in the tournament since 2008.
