It’s autumn once again in New England and you know what that means, right? Grandma is at home, whipping out her recipe for that delicious apple pie that makes our mouths water just thinking about it. On Saturday, Oct. 23, PC Black Pack Rugby made a different type of pie using the Wheaton College squad as their ingredients (metaphorically, of course) as they made mince meat out of the opposition. It was obvious that each and every member of the Pack had a chip on their shoulder after last week’s defeat as they prevailed by a score of 53-0.

The Pack dominated all aspects of the game. They were faster, stronger, more intelligent, and much more talented. To make an analogy, it was as if Franklin Roosevelt was placed in a race against former “world’s fastest man,” Michael Johnson. Well, maybe the discrepancy between the two teams wasn’t quite that severe, but the Pack nonetheless made Wheaton’s team look foolish.

Brian Kelly ’11 and Jack Corcoran ’13 each had solid matches, and many underclassmen who would normally not see playing time were given the opportunity to contribute to the victory. The Pack makes the short trek to Bryant College this Saturday, Oct. 30, hoping to close out the season with another impressive victory.
