The Doylestown Rugby Academy youth boys team traveled to Reading to play Berks County in their second preseason match on March 24. The young Dragons dug quite a hole for themselves in the first half, being down 0-15 with Berks County leading. However, after some serious soul-searching and determined play, the young Dragons outscored their opponents in the second half, 50-7. The final score was 50-22, in favor of Doylestown.

Doylestown try scorers were: Jonah Khanan (three), Quinn Fragner (one), Carter Braun (one), Conor Cassidy (one), Lucas Wyatt (one) and Harry Imperato (one). Conversions were kicked by Conor Cassidy (four) and Declan Murray (one). Berks County had four trys and one conversion.
