GU Third at St. Pat’s

By Sean P. Flynn Hoya Staff Writer

Georgetown took third place at the St. Patrick’s Day Tournament, held at Bolling Air Force base in Maryland.

On Saturday, the Hoyas defeated Kutztown, 12-0, and later that day beat Villanova, 17-0. On Sunday afternoon the Hoyas lost to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, 42-3, and went home with third-place honors.

In the win over Kutztown, Georgetown won because of strong scrums by the forwards, helping Georgetown keep possession of the ball, according to Jean-Baptiste Seilliere, a player on the rugby team.

In Saturday’s second win, scrum-half Greg Bassi scored three tries and Jim Goodfellow converted a penalty to lead Georgetown to the win.

Bad conditions didn’t help the Hoyas on Sunday in their loss to eventual champion Indiana.

Next week the Hoyas play at Pennsylvania.
