SANDWICH, Mass. — Berkshire United RFC's men's club finished second in the New England Rugby Football Union Division 4 tournament for the second year in a row on Saturday at Camp Good News in Sandwich.

Berkshire defeated Boston Ironsides, 39-0, in the first round and defeated Bennington Battle RFC, 29-7, in the semifinals before falling 28-3 to Boston Maccabi in the championship game. Maccabi, with the championship, is promoted to Division 3 for next season.
 
Berkshire led Ironsides 27-0 at the half. Quintin Sumpter and Ken Card finished the match with two tries each, with Steve Fleischmann and Jon LaCasse also earning tries. David Colli had a try and two conversions.
 
Berkshire lost its season opener at Bennington in September, but avenged the loss with its semifinal win. Matt Guilfoy and Andrew Lawrence had two tries each, with Lawrence's tries coming in the first half. Card earned his third try of the tournament in the game, while Colli kicked two successful conversions.
 
Colli's penalty kick was Berkshire's only score in the championship loss. Berkshire also fell in last year's championship match, to Old Gold 'B.'
 
Berkshire finishes the fall season 6-3.
