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.
