Bard Shows Promise in Season Opener

Fordham hosted the Bard Women’s Rugby team for its first game of the season on Saturday and, playing across the street from the Bronx Zoo, the Raptors were in beast-mode for much of the afternoon. While the final scoreline reads 41-32 to the hosts, when the second half shifted from 13s to 10s rugby, Bard turned up the heat and outscored Fordham 32-17.

Bard Closes String of Vassar Visits By Defeating Hosts In Last Play Thriller

Poughkeepsie, NY (04/14/2019) — For the third consecutive weekend, the Bard Men’s Rugby team loaded into a van on Sunday morning and made the trek down 9G to Vassar College. The Vassar Farm has become a home away from home for Bard this semester, although their hosts have not played nicely, defeating the Reds both previous visits. On the final play of their last game this Sunday, however, Bard punched in a try and a successful conversion gave them a much-deserved 21-19 victory over Vassar.
