Blues v NOVA and Rapp

Blues D3 opened things up with a hard fought match against Rappahannock. It was back and forth into the 2nd half when the Blues D3 pulled within 5 at 29-24. Then Rappahannock exploited the inexperience of the the Blues D3 to pull away for a 50-24 win.

The D1 match between NOVA and the Blues D1 was hard hitting and action packed. NOVA capitalized on the Blues penalties with penalty kicks to get on the board, while Norfolk answered back with trys. The Blues took a 34-28 lead with about 15 minutes to play and then chased down a NOVA break to seal the win.

Great day for the club with a ton of players taking the pitch to represent the Blues on both teams.
