Men's rugby - Freshman side scrimmages Bridgton

NORTHFIELD, Vt. - Bridgton Academy traveled to Norwich to gain rugby experience April 18.

It was a good day of rugby for both sides. Some Cadets' players actually filled in Bridgton's roster. Bridgton scored eight tries and Norwich scored three. The Norwich tries were scored by sophomore hooker George Myshko, freshman winger Dan Burkhart, and junior winger Brandon Drennan. Drennan also scored two tries for Bridgton as did sophomore winger D'Lontae Sewell.

"Both sides helped each other in developing their rugby," Coach Bob Weggler said. "Norwich shared rugby experiences with Bridgton and then provided dinner. This has been a spring tradition the past four years. It has been a great way for the young players to further their development and learn about camaraderie."

The Cadets' varsity participates in a round-robin military tournament at Kings Point and the Merchant Marine Academy Sunday, April 29. The first matches are planned for 11:00 a.m.
