The New England Cup (2-3) 3rd Place
On a rainy Sunday, the Tufflepuffs headed down to the Boston commons for the 2nd Annual New England Cup, hosted by Emerson. Despite the fierce weather conditions, the team had a great time, and pulled out a 3rd place trophy in their tournament debut. The tournament began with a round robin matches against competitors Emerson, BU, and UMass. In the first game, Tufts put up a fantastic fight against the nationally ranked number 2, Emerson, yet lost out by 10 points after a snitch grab. In the game against BU, Tufts played well against their scrimmage challengers from the week before. In the third game, Tufts defeated UMass with an intense Quaffle score during a sudden death round. In the tournament round, Tufts put up a great performance once again against BU, this time leaving everything on the pitch with the game coming down to a snitch grab by BU. Finally in the consolation round, Tufts won handily against UMass to take 3rd place.
In addition to its 3rd place win, Tufflepuff Keeper, John Gill was honored as the best Keeper in New Enagland.
Congratulations to all teams that competed!
