We were unable to field a team for this weekend’s games vs. the Bristol Blues and the Lisbon Tunnelmen at the Buzzards Bay Brewery so we had to cancel.

The day got off on a good start when the rain stopped before the first game started. The sun, however, never did find its way out from behind the clouds. Lyme Taverners won both games by scores of 10-4 and 27-8 perhaps reflecting the fact that while this was our first match of the season, Lyme already had a match in their win column. We’ll get another shot at them on June 6th.
Update: Bristol has let us know that they won’t be able to make it to our match on Saturday. So we’ll just be playing a double-header with Lyme. First game at 10:30am, second game should start around 12:30pm.
Our first match of the season is a 3-team match vs. the Lyme Taverners and the Bristol Blues BBC of Rhode Island this Saturday, May 16th, on our home field at Fort Trumbull. We will play in the first game vs. Lyme and it will start at 10:30am. The 2nd game will be Lyme vs. Bristol which should start around 12:30pm, and we will play the 3rd game vs. Bristol starting around 2:30pm.
