Men’s Rugby Blanks St. Bonaventure, 29-0
Isaac Marret, Koikoui Nelligan and Gerard McCarron all recorded try scores to lead the Army West Point Men’s Rugby Team to a 29-0 win over the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Rugby East play. The Black Knights (3-0, 2-0 Rugby East) kept their perfect record intact with the result while posting their first shutout effort of the season.
Fresh off a bye week Army used their fresh legs to run on the Bonnies early, scoring a try just four minutes into the contest. Isaac Marret picked up where he left off two weeks ago, crossing the try line to put the first Army points on the board. Sean McNulty booted home the conversion to put the Brothers up 7-0 early in the contest.
McNulty controlled the kicking duties once again for Army, adding three points to the Army lead after a successful penalty kick in the ninth minute of action. McNulty finished the contest with seven total points.
The Black Knights and Bonnies would battle for the next 20 minutes as Army made a couple of key defensive plays to eventually set up Koikoi Nelligan for a try score in the 29th minute. Nelligan's second try in two games put Army up 15-0 going into the break. Read more.
