On Saturday April 5th the Blackstones took on rival league opponent Louisville RFC for the second annual "Kentucky Cup" match. Kickoff was at 12:00pm to accommodate the annual University of Kentucky alumni match later in the afternoon. In front of a crowd of family, friends, old boys, and current UK players, the Blackstones were triumphant in avenging last Spring's loss by defeating Louisville 46-5.

The Blackstones were dominant during the first half, with tries by center Matt Parsons and flyhalf Hank Harned, as well as a conversion and a penalty kick by Ryan Mason. Some ball handling errors by the home team led to a few close calls, and Louisville did punch a try in in the 36th minute to leave the score 15-5 at the half. The second half was all Blackstones, as they broke the game wide open with a flurry of scoring in the last twenty minutes. Tries from flanker Ben Rupp, prop Tyler Parsons, center Matt Lyons, center Matt Parsons, and wing Shane Kelley, as well as three conversions by Ryan Mason, sealed the deal for a dominant Blackstones victory.

Next weekend (April 12th) the 'Stones play their last league match of the season by taking on White River RFC in Indianapolis. They are currently 3-3 in the Spring and 5-2 in league play for the 2013/2014 competitive season.
