FINAL SCORE: (3-0-1) HURT Henchmen 24, (3-0-1) Lone Star Rugby Club 24
The Henchmen demonstrated miles of heart as they were down 14 points with 8 minutes left in the match versus Lone Star Rugby Club. Late game heroics by the Henchmen scrum provided clean ball for #8 Kevin Griffis to rumble in for the tie’ing score with no time remaining (pictured below). Special thanks to Lone Star for a tough, hard-hitting match. We look forward to the re-match in April.
