American International College moved to 6-0 in the ECRC Thursday with an impressive 45-15 defeat of UMass.
The Minutemen went into this game 2-1 and playing some solid rugby, but an athletic and nicely-clicking Yellowjacket squad hit them for two tries in the opening 16 minutes and cruised from there.
While AIC leads the ECRC, there’s still plenty of opportunity for other teams to catch up.
That chase is basically between NEC and Boston College. NEC sits at 3-1 and BC is 3-0, so this would be a battle for 2nd (at the moment).
AIC flyhalf Jihad Khabir scored four tries as the Yellowjackets defeated Fairfield 52-13 in ECRC action Saturday.
Boston College opened up their ECRC conference account with a 26-12 defeat of University of Connecticut in the Nutmeg State Saturday.
BC led early thanks to a try from Duncan Wood, but UConn replied with two penalty kicks to lead 6-5.
