Captain Kevin Hull '15 and the Jeffs enjoyed an undefeated fall.

The Amherst Men’s Rugby team took the pitch against archrival Williams last Saturday, where they demolished the Ephs 34-3.
After jumping out to a quick 10-0 lead in the first half, the Jeffs exploded in the second half to go on a 24-3 run. Junior Jordan Pinsky and Sam Seham ’16 were responsible for Amherst’s tries in the first half.

Williams tried to mount a second half come back, but Ianni Drivas ’15 came up and made a big hit on the opening kickoff of the second half to stop any thought of a comeback. Captain Kevin Hull ’15, Julian Scott ’14, Micah Rotich ’14 and Cody Pfun-Pulliam ’16 were responsible for Amherst’s tries in the second half.

Pinsky played an excellent game at scrum-half and scored a try in the first half.

Key to Amherst’s success was the ability to move the ball and constantly stay in William’s half.

The win capped off an undefeated fall season for the Jeffs and provides a lot of momentum heading into the spring season.
