NM Brujos topple visiting Scottsdale Blues 39-17, face ABQ Varks next. Spring practice continues.
On a sunny and clear but cool winter day the New Mexico Brujos kicked off their 2022 Rio Grande rugby Union spring season (for real this time) in fine fashion last Saturday, using an explosive second half to outpace the the visiting Scottsdale Blues for a 39 - 17 victory. The Brujos got on the board first and after two red cards for the visiting Blues in the first half led at halftime 17-10. Scottsdale briefly tied the match at 17 all to start the first half before the Brujos scored three straight trys to pull away for good. The NM Brujos would like to express their gratitude to the Scottsdale Blues for making the trip and for a spirited match. The win and score differential get the NM Brujos off to a good start for the season and put them on sure footing for their match against their crosstown rivals the ABQ Aardvarks in two weeks.
Next up for the NM Brujos:
The New Mexico Brujos face the ABQ Aardvarks on Saturday, February 26th. Time and location TBA.
