Axemen fall one short
After three quarters of play the scores were locked at 4 points each and it was not until the dying stages of the game that a lapse in Axemen concentration allowed New Haven across the line to take a 10 to 4 lead. A penalty against the Axemen allowed the New Haven team to take a penalty soon after that let the lead go out to 12 to 4 before a drop goal in the dying moments put the game out of reach for the Axemen and the score ended at 13 to 4.
The Axemen are encouraging all Rugby League Fans to attend the USA Rugby League National Championship Game (Grand Final) that will be played in Philadelphia on August 27. Please visit www.usarugbyleague.com for all the details.
