Fog men at Bingham Cup 2010 - Day 1


The San Francisco Fog RFC achieved near perfection on the first day of The Bingham CupĀ® tournament in Minneapolis, Minnesota, winning all four of their matches with only one try scored against them all day, despite temperatures that soared into the 80’s on a mostly sunny yet very windy day.

SF Fog B Side 31 - Ottawa Wolves 5

The first match for the Fog reunited the club with two of its former members, who after leaving San Francisco founded the Ottawa Wolves, the Canadian Nation Capital Regions first gay-friendly rugby football club. Both sides played spirited rugby, with the Wolves scoring the lone try against the Fog on the first day of the tournament.

SF Fog A Side 12 - Seattle Quake A Side 0

The Fog’s A side continued its West Coast rivalry with the Seattle Quake’s A side to start the day. Each side grinded out a grueling 20 minutes with no score at halftime, and the Fog broke through in the second half with two tries to grab the victory.

SF Fog B Side 20 - La Rebelyon 0

The Fog’s B side continued its international competition with the La Rebelyon, a rugby team from France. With strong and dedicated play by both the backs and the forwards, the Fog scored four tries en route to a solid match.

SF Fog A Side 58 - Minnesota Mayhem 0

Ending day one with the hosts of The Bingham Cup 2010 tournament in the Minnesota Mayhem, the Fog’s A side picked up where they left off in their first game, ramping up their play until they were firing on all cylinders in scoring a decisive win.
