Portland rugby team drops a close one

The Portland U-19 boys’ rugby club lost a very close match to Seacoast (N.H.) Rugby Club Saturday in a game played on the turf at the Amesbury (Mass.) Sports Park. The match was dominated by Seacoast in the first half, as they took advantage of Portland turnovers and built a substantial 22-7 halftime lead. Portland’s first stanza points came on fine run by flyhalf Chase Rochon (Greely). Rochon also kicked the conversion. In the second half however, the Power Pigs came alive as flanker and captain Jack McDonald (Cape Elizabeth) led the comeback, scoring three tries on hard runs off Seacoast penalties, and fullback Parker Doyon (Cheverus) converted one. Seacoast scored their only second half try in between McDonald’s efforts and that proved to be the difference. Portland’s record stands at 1-2 as the Power Pigs prepare for their league championships in two weeks on the campus of Colby-Sawyer College in New Hampshire. Portland will be the No. 3 seed in the round robin format.
