Quiet Weekend in the Red River

Women's Division I: 

Austin Valkyries defeated the Houston Athletic Rugby Club 35-12 and are now tied with Houston for first place in Division I. The Valkyries were successful in their attempts to spread the ball wide, as both of their wingers, Kathleen Todesco and Lusiana Tulega, crossed the line and scored the first two tries of the game. Valkyries play this weekend against Northern Virginia Rugby in the Gold Cup, and all signs point towards an excellent game of Rugby being played.
