A Tightly Fought Weekend in the Frontier Region

Teams continue to jockey for position in their respective ladders as playoffs draw near.

Mid-America Men's Division II: 
The Saint Louis Royals continued their domination of the Mid-America division as the handed their cross town rivals Saint Louis Bombers a 31-19 defeat. Stephen Duff and Rory Cunningham lead the way with Duff adding sixteen points with the boot, while Duff scored two tries for his team. The Royals will face bottom of the table Omaha Goats this weekend. 

Rocky Mountain Men's Division II:
Boulder Rugby moved within striking distance of the top three after toppling the Denver Harlequins 57-26 over the weekend. Boulder was lead by their forward pack who crossed the line five times for them. They now sit one point behind the Denver Highlanders who took on the Denver Barbarians this week. 

The Highlanders needed a win to keep in touch with the top of the table Barbarians, but were unable to get the result they desired, ultimately falling 51-20. 

Rocky Mountain Men's Division III: 
The third division of the Rocky Mountain competition had a rather lopsided weekend with the average margin of victory between the two teams being 36. The Northern Colorado Flamingos were able to put away the Laramie Lumberjacks with ease as they passed them 69-19. The Littleton Eagles fared a little bit better against the Queen City Rams, as they fell by a margin of 22 points, 30-8. 

Mid-America, Missouri Men's Division III: 
It was not a good weekend for the Saint Louis Bombers, as they lost their second game to another cross town rival the Saint Louis Hornets, 22-7. The Saint Louis Ramblers played an incredibly tight contest against the Columbia Outlaws, where a 60th minute conversion by the Outlaws was the difference, as the Outlaws won 17-15. The Outlaws then took on the Hornets in a game that saw the Outlaws victorious via a 19-7 margin.  

Rocky Mountain Men's Division IV: 
Marauders Rugby recorded their third win of the season as they took down the Colorado Rush in a high scoring 33-24 affair. The game saw several lead changes and with only fourteen minutes left the Rush held a three point lead, but a flurry of tries in the final ten minutes was enough to separate the two teams and send the Rush home with dreams of what could have been. In the other Division IV game the Denver Barbarians D4 completed the sweep of the Highlanders and defeated the Denver Highlanders D4 28-12. 

Rocky Mountain Women's Division I: 
In the only women's game this weekend in the Frontier Region Glendale Merlins fell in the waining moments of the game to Black Ice, 27-26. Despite having the ball and the lead with five minutes left, a string of mistakes plagued the Merlins and ended up costing them the game. Black Ice crossed the line and dotted the ball down under the posts as time expired to postpone any thoughts that the Merlins had of a first round bye.
