Jacksonville played top-ranked Boca Raton at home this past Saturday. A little remittences of last years clash as Florida’s only cold weekend was upon us again. Jacksonville was playing at a new location, Abbess Park, as it is more centrally located to are new sponsor social, Culhane’s Irish Pub. The game would come to a slow start for Jacksonville as Boca Raton’s offense seemed to start wearing on JAX early in the match, with Boca scoring 2 tries and a penalty kick in the first 20 mins of the game. Jacksonville would respond with 2 tries back to back from center David Washington to narrow the gap at halftime.
Boca would not let up and kept piling on the scoring in the second half. Jacksonville’s offense started running flat and sloppy which Boca exploited. Jacksonville would end on a high-note as flanker Danny Palmeri would get his first try of his career to end the game.
Final score: Boca (41) JAX (21)
