Fallbrook and Amazons Play for Natl. Title
Fallbrook and Sacramento are set to take part in the Emirates Airline USA Rugby 2011 Girl's Under-19 Championship on Sunday at Rip Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. Fallbrook has come through the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds completely unscathed, denying their opponents, New York Rugby Club and Divine Savior Holy Angels, from crossing their line once.
The defending champs, the Amazons, squeaked by a solid Kent team in the semifinal after taking Sebastian River out in a 32-5 win. Vaimoana Vailea was dominant in the quarterfinal against Sebastian, scoring a hat trick.
Sacramento will have their hands full with Fallbrook's backrow combo of Samantha and Megan Pinson. Megan and Samantha both scored in Fallbrook's 18-0 win over New York, and Megan also did damage against Divine Savior Holy Angels, scoring in that game as well.
Kickoff is at 2 p.m. MDT and will be webcast live on USA Rugby's UStream channel: www.ustream.tv/usarugby.
