Greenwich rugby beats Xavier


The Greenwich Rugby team beat Xavier 31-22 in front of a huge crowd at Cardinal Stadium Friday evening.

The Cardinals scored twice in the final five minutes to secure the victory over the national powerhouse from Manhattan.

Xavier has the oldest rugby program in the country and has won the national championship several times.

Last year Xavier destroyed Greenwich last year in New York.

This is the Cardinals first win over Xavier since 1999.
