Each Fordham Rugby match consists of an A-Side game, which is the official competition reflected above, followed by an unrecorded developmental B-Side game to provide experience for new players.
FURFC versus SUNY Stony Brook: Away Loss 36-0
A young, but scrappy Fordham side fell 36-0 on Friday Night to #23 ranked Stony Brook. Fordham was able to move the ball well through their initial phases, but could not break through on the fourth and fifth phase ball. Three intercept tries led to a successful night for the Seawolves.
FURFC versus USMMA Kings Point: Away Loss 41-3
Fordham lost to King's Point 41-3 on Friday night in Great Neck. The Rams played the beginning of the match on the front foot, dominating territory in the first half. Unfortunately for the Rams, the Midshipmen's defense was up to the task. Despite the dominance in territory, the Rams were down at the half 17-3. The Rams opened the second half with some sloppy passing, costing them two tries. The Midshipmen piled on the points and were the more aggressive team in the end.
FURFC versus Iona College: Away Loss 27-5
FURFC versus SUNY Stony Brook: Home Loss 27-5
Fordham fell to the Stony Brook Seawolves 27-5 on Friday night. Flat play and difficulties with the 9/10 exchange were problems through out. The lone bright spot for the Rams was their efforts in the scrum. The Rams won three of the Seawolves put-ins and popped up the opposing front row several times.
FURFC versus USMMA at King's Point: Home Loss 34-26 (50th Anniversary Match)
The Fordham Ruggers fell to Kings Point 34-26 at rain-soaked Coffey Stadium. The Rams, playing under the bright lights of Coffey for the first time in their history, allowed 12 unanswered points in the first 10 minutes of play. After settling in, the Rams scored 2 overload tries to even the match at 12-12 at the end of the first half.
The second half, however, started out much like the first: the Rams played on the back foot and attempted to kick for territory instead of possession. Kings Point put on a solid offensive display to begin the second half. Despite a desperate, heart-filled rally, Fordham ran out of opportunities and time, falling 34-26 before the home crowd.
FURFC versus Columbia University: Home Victory 50-8 (9/11 Memorial Match)
Fordham Rugby defeated its old rival, Columbia, on Sunday, September 11th, 50-8 at an emotional Murphy Field. Fordham University held a pre-game memorial ceremony featuring the Fordham ROTC Color Guard. Ram's Captain Nick Braun read the names of the fallen Fordham Ruggers and a moment of silence was held before the Ramblers sang the National Anthem. As for the match, #9 Jard Rozowsky slotted 15 points across 6 conversations and 1 penalty try. Center AJ Falco led all try scorers with 2 tries on two powerful break away runs.
Special Thanks to Dan Somma for attending the match, to Club Sports Director Mike Roberts who helped us secure the loud speaker systems, and to Father Tueth who gave a beautiful prayer before kickoff.
