Met NY. Bayonne opened their league account 24-5 over the Village Lions, who dropped to 1-1. Danbury beat Montauk 17-10.

Lansdowne had to work hard to beat the Princeton Athletic Club 18-14.

It rained all over the East Coast and this game was not spared. Lansdowne fell behind 14-3 before tries from Brian Fingleton and then Brendan Garrone, along with Jonny Coughan’s kicking, put Lansdowne ahead.


In Mid-Atlantic the league began Saturday. Wilmington beat Blackthorn (waiting on score).
