AIC Dominates Fairfield

AIC have put up some very impressive results this season with the latest being a 96-8 win over Fairfield University. That comes after lopsided wins over Northeastern, Albany, Dartmouth, and Yale. They also came away with tight wins over New England and Penn State to stay perfect on the year. Overall the team has scored 484 points while only giving up 71. The Yellow Jackets have matches against Middlebury, UConn, UMass, and Boston College before the ACRC Bowl Series.

After the match several players commented on the win over Fairfield.

Brian Lizotte (JR, Flanker 6, Naperville, IL) - "Penalties were a bit of a concern but one of the highs for our team was an ablility to roll with the punches. We lost two players two cards [at different times] and we were able to roll with the punches. The  versatility of our forwards helped us fill those spaces seamlessly. We always emphasize guys just being rugby players and it showed."

Kurtis Werner (JR, Scrum Half 9, Centennial, CO) - "Our structure was pretty solid but we need to finish better. We need to take the sure thing and not worry about looking good or being fancy. Our penalties concern me as we move into bigger games, but I think we'll get on track."

Anthony Castro (SR, Prop 16, Sacramento, CA) - "I was proud to see our wings finishing as a product of our structure. The handling and support lines were great. Guys did a great job staying focus and letting the scoreboard to the work."

Jacob Ponder (SO, Center 13, Orlando, FL) - "It was great to see us meet our goals by providing persistent quality no matter what. We pressured the other team for 80 minuteson both sides of the ball."

Coach Macy - Despite some trouble at the breakdowns, it was great to see the guys give shape to the game and stay committed to moving the ball. Jacob Ponder did a wonderful job linking the middle and outside of the field, and the penetration from the forwards is heading exactly toward what we'd like. These guys are playing with one another really well and it's obvious they care a lot about what they do."
