It was a busy weekend for SBU Rugby with the Developmental side playing Buffalo State College on Friday, and the Varsity and JV teams traveling to Penn State on Saturday. The Devos came out strong with a quick score from Rafael Nieves, and they didn't look back for the rest of the game. Pat Mann, Rafael Nieves, and Liam Messing played great together in the back line scoring most of the 50 points the Bonnies put up. Garret Coolidge and Garret Lauber played great defense, and lead the Bonnies to a 51-22 victory over Buff State. 
 
In the Varsity game, Penn State jumped out to a quick 38-3 lead in the first half, but the Bonnies came out swinging in the second and scored 12 points in the first 10 minutes.  The Bonnies couldn't complete the comeback and fell to #5 Penn State 50-15. 
 
The JV team showed some grit in a hard fought first half, but couldn't hold off the Nittany Lions and were defeated 50-7.
