Ruggers of yore headed back to Johnson State College — or as the kids call it these days, Northern Vermont University — for the 50th anniversary of JSC Rugby.

A planned match between Badger-packed Mad River/Stowe and a team from Boston didn’t pan out, so those on hand made do with what they had, for a great throwback afternoon mixing players present and past.

Before the on-field action, the new rugby field scoreboard was unveiled, dedicated to the late Shawn “Lucky” Hayden, whose widow, Dot, attended the ceremony.
