Iona downed St. Bonaventure 36-24 Saturday in St. Bonaventure, NY. The Gaels dotted down six tries to the Bonnies’ four. Though St. Bonaventure and Iona are Rugby East rivals, Saturday’s contest was a friendly. The teams meet Oct. 18 at Iona for the conference tilt.
The win is big for Iona, now 2-0 on the season, as the Gaels suffered a 90-5 loss to the Bonnies last fall.
“It was a needed win and it felt great going to the new field and beating them,” Iona president John Cullen said.
Iona actually held St. Bonaventure out of the try zone in the first half, and couple with ascendancy in the lineouts and scrums, that was good enough for the win.

Cons: Moyo 3
St. Bonaventure 24
