  • New England College Rugby Lion's #8 Zach Hall gets lofted by teammates in a line-out where the ball is brought back into play either by going out of bounds or on a penalty. The Lions beat Eastern Connecticut State University 38-12 in Henniker Sunday to win a three-peat as North East Champions in the National Small College Rugby Organization going 33-0 the last three years. The National Championship is in April 2015 in Glendale, Colorado. Head Coach Jeremy Treece praised his team Sunday saying "Our team played with true passion, grit and determination. Eastern Connecticut was hands down the best team we have ever played in New England Finals."
