PW Takes Third Straight With Home Win Over Brandywine

PW vs Brandywine

PWRFC defeated Brandywine RFC 98-0 Saturday in a big win for the club. The victory was a great statement with friends, fans and families out for Family Day. Tim Antoian took Man of the Match honors. 

After the A-side game, the Old Boys defeated Brandywine 28-17. It was 28-12 before Brandywine scored a try at the final whistle.  

PW would like to thank Sly Fox for donating beer and Neopolitan Deli for donating a hoagie platter. Also thanks to Dom for putting in a lot of time and effort for prepping all the food, and for Mongo and Knab for taking charge of the day. It was a great fall day of rugby that everyone definitely enjoyed.

Kings College took the crown in a round-robin college tournament that took place before the PW game, with the club on hand to help with reffing and other duties.
