Rugby Club Defeats Harvard Business

By Randy Myers

The men's rugby club used superior strength and experience to defeat the Harvard Business School 255 Saturday. The first 20 minutes of the first half were a little sloppy for the the Engineers. A quick penalty kick by Gilles Schlienger G, was erased by a long Harvard run down the sideline and MIT found themselves in an early 53 hole. MIT then came back with a try by Nicolas Aplincourt G. A successful conversion made it 105 at halftime and MIT never looked back.

MIT took advantage of an emotionally drained HBS squad in the second half with two tries by Steve Lasher G. A conversion and penalty kick by Gilles rounded out the scoring.

"Harvard Business School is our heated rivalry, it is nice to thoroughly dominate them," said captain Dave Stracher '86. MIT's next match is against Babson on Saturday.
