Under-9 Team Last fall, the Rugby Club raised $200 which was donated to the Prince Edward-Farmville Youth Association to sponsor a recreational soccer team.  PEFYA had enough money last fall to sponsor all the teams and so carried the Rugby Club funds over to sponsor one of the Under-9 teams playing this spring.

The Under-9 team that was sponsored by the H-SC Rugby Club won the Spring 2010 season championships for its age group in a heart stopping game on Sunday, May 23.  Two sudden death overtimes left the score tied at 1-1, requiring a round of penalty kicks to settle the match.
