In the clash of the weekend to decide the ECRC, Boston College and American International College ended tied, 29-29, to leave both teams unbeaten in the conference.
In the end, AIC won the conference due to more bonus points over the course of the season, finishing 6-0-1, with 32 standings points, while BC was 6-0-1, with 31.
In writing about the Chesapeake Conference, where there seemed to be an inordinate number of close games, we decided to see if our impressions were correct.
So we looked at the stats in Men's DI College rugby. We looked at which conferences had the most close losses (7 points or less) and also who had the most, what we'll call "competitive losses," which means losses of 14 or less.
Boston College defeated New England College this week in a makeup game of a previous postponement.
The result - a convincing 38-16 result for the Eagles - puts BC in excellent position to challenge for the ECRC title later this month.
