ARP: Glendale, Life Join Northeast Trio, Old Blue Crush NYAC

This year's American Rugby Premiership has taken a different format. Mystic River, NYAC, and Old Blue will all take part once again while the Glendale Merlins and Life have been invited as well. The Northeast sides will all play each other home and away while Glendale and Life will each play the Northeast teams once but won't play each other. By design the ARP is a loose group of teams seeking higher-level matches.

Old Blue 76-33 NYAC 

Old Blue got their fall season started in the best possible fashion with a 76-33 drubbing of rivals NYAC. New signing Cam Dolan was big for Old Blue and complimented their core group of players like Connor Wallace-Sims, Luke Hume, and Nate Augspurger. Old Blue ran out to a 29-0 lead before NYAC finally scored. The closest it would get after that was 43-21. After that Old Blue continued to run away with the match.

Up next for Old Blue is a match against Oxford on September 25th. NYAC will take on Mystic River next week.
