ACPA RUGBY U-17

Armenian College Rugby Team

The young Armenians participated in the All-India U-17 Rugby Tournament which spanned from the 28th to the 31st of July. The team was defeated by Jharkhand (12:5). Then the  team competed for the Plate and won Jaipur (19:0). This was followed by the victory against Punjab (34:0). The Plate Finals was played between Armenians and Haryana where the Armenians emerged victorious (24:7). This was an experience which taught the boys many important lessons which they will utilise in the near future for achieving further goals. Soon the team will commence practice for a tournament in Kolkata with aims of positive results.
Thanks to Mr. Armen  Makarian and Mr. Mukhtar Alam, the manager and coach of the team respectively, without whom this trip would not have been possible. Both hope to see brighter achievements for the young Armenians.
