Florida Semi-Finals Playoff
Location: Don Ester Ridge Middle School Tech
Its that time of year, this is the time that we’ve all been waiting for. Its playoff time, win or go home. Every team competing this year for Florida State Rugby Championship Title has a fair chance at claiming FL. The Final Four teams are 1. FTL 2. Boca Raton 3.Orlando and 4. Jacksonville. FTL will host Jacksonville while Boca Raton host Orlando and the winners of the two will face each other at The Polo Club in Wellington,FL on April 28th. During the regular season match up between the Buccaneers and Orlando Griffins didn’t go fair too well for the Bucs as they showed lack of control and let the weather elements get the best of them. With this being a win or go home game, the first match seems so long ago. This week both teams will come out fired up knowing whats on the line but there can only be one winner and one loser.

With the regular season coming to an end the Bucs took their first loss in Orlando. The match up in Orlando was a sloppy showing at best by Boca. The weather conditions was rainy and cold with a muddy field that was already beat up on (Orlando HS Rugby played Boca Raton HS Rugby) from before. The Griffins controlled the slippery ball very well and the muddy pitch neutralized Bocas speed. After losing to Orlando Griffins the Bucs hosted the Association Alumni, an Argentine travel side that played in Ruggerfest’s Elite Division and won 1st place came with a full A side and B side to match up against the Bucs. The game resembled New Zealand vs U.S.A match ups. One club demonstrated complete knowledge of all aspects of rugby. After taking two L’s in back to back days the Bucs are now looking forward to finishing the season how they began. This past Saturday marked the first home game since Dec 6th. While on the road the Bucs went 4-1. With two bye weeks again the Bucs will face rival Fort Lauderdale Knights March 28th. In the previous match between these two top teams, The Bucs squeak by in the last minutes to score a try and take victory. This match up will not have much of a impact on playoff seedings but it will definitely be a confidence booster heading into the playoffs. Come out and support your local rugby team as the #1 Boca Raton Buccaneers take on #2 Fort Lauderdale Knights on the 21st Of March 2015. This will be the match of the year for Florida Rugby.
Boca Bucs travel to Orlando for a top Four match up.
After having off for two weeks from FRU competitions The Buccaneers are heading into battle against the Orlando Griffins. The Buccaneers are still your reigning #1 top seeded team after defeating Tampa Krewe 39-18. This week starts the 1st of 4 tough match ups for the Bucs. To close out the year the Bucs will face Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale , Miami Bumble bees and Orlando Griffins this weekend. This season the Orlando Griffin have been playing with a bolstered side after finishing in last place in last years season to competing for a top seed playoff spot this year. This game shall be another measuring stick for both teams. The game will be held in Orlando and after having only one week off the Griffins should be well in sync with one another and may prove to be a worthy opponent for the Buccaneers. Come out and support your Boca Raton Rugby club as they look to continue their win strike and remain unbeaten.
