OB Augspurger Starts In Lop-sided Victory Over The All Blacks.
The Eagles 7s side opened the 2015-16 World Sevens Series with a Final Four appearance that left them in 3rd place only because of a late rally by England in the Cup Semifinals that ended when England scored with no time emaining. It was historic for the Eagles because they defeated the New Zealand All Blacks for the first time ever...and did it twice.
When the two sides met for third place, the Eagles staff opted to give the reserves the chance to compete against the best and to show what they could do. And did they ever - The USA ran away from the Kiwis 31-12.
Old Blue have put themselves in a good position heading into the spring season as they finished off the fall with a 35-28 win over their rivals NYAC. James Bird and Rick Kirkland led the way for Old Blue as they fell behind early only to come back and win. With three wins and one loss--which came to Life--in ARP play Old Blue have set themselves up in a position to face Life in a potential winner take all match in the spring on the final day of the season if things go according to plan.
