Bucks drop two games from schedule

When it comes to numbers, the Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club is having some trouble lately.

The gay rugby squad, in the midst of its fall season, has pulled two home matches from its schedule. The Bucks canceled its Oct. 25 match against local rival High County when it became clear the club wouldn’t be able to field enough players to be competitive. In a bit of irony, the same thing happened to the Bucks for its Nov. 1 match against Charlotte. The North Carolina club dropped the match when they figured enough players weren’t available.

The Bucks, 3-1 this fall, will close out the season Nov. 15 with a double-header at home against the Phoenix Storm and Minneapolis.

Next month, the Bucks holds its regular “Bar Night” at the Eagle. The Nov. 15 fundraiser runs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
