Chiefs Rugby Club
The Chiefs Boys' Varsity Rugby team suffered their first loss of the season last Thursday night with an unyielding battle against the South Suburban Cobras. With an exciting surge at the end to tie the match, the Chiefs fell short. Cole La Plant (WV) was awarded Man of the Match. Backs of the Match were awarded to three players: Carson O'Donnell (WV), Matthew Wagenknecht (WV), and Franco Gonzalez (OHS). Their next match will be on the home pitch Friday, May 3, at GFIS in Yorkville against Taft High School from Chicago. It is the Senior Night match honoring our Senior Chiefs from the boys and girls teams. Kickoff at 5:30, food and celebration after the match around 7:00, so come out and support the Seniors and Chiefs Rugby!
On Sunday, the Fresh/Soph boys team were edged out by New Trier, 25-20. Recognized players were Back of the Match-Justin, Forward of the Match-Aiden. The next Fr/Soph match has been rescheduled to Tuesday, May 7, at GFIS in Yorkville against Taft High School.
