MYSTIC RIVER TURNS IN A GUTTY PERFORMANCE  TO WIN MEN’S DIVISION I

Glendale, CO.- For the second time in three years Mystic River, are the Men’s Division I Club National Champions, as they see off Belmont Shore in a thrilling finish 25-24.

Mystic River’s head coach, Josh Smith, said after the game, “This group of players is a special group of players… This is what the club has been about all season… We’ve been a gutty team all year.” There was never a time where that was more evident than tonight’s match.

In the lead up to the game, most expected a hard, physical and close match up with plenty of scoring, they were right. It took next to no time for the first points of the game to be scored, as Mystic River opened the scoring in the first two minutes, after scooping up a loose pass just outside Belmont’s 22 and strolled in from there. Unperturbed by the quick start by Mystic River, Belmont was calm and poised as they marched down the field minutes later to win a penalty and cut the lead to four. It didn’t take too long for Belmont to get right back into the attacking half of Mystic and find themselves three points richer. After fifteen minutes it was a 7-6 game.

GLENDALE, Colo. – The Austin Huns defeated longtime American rugby power New York Athletic Club, 27-23, Saturday to win their first USA Rugby Emirates Airline Men’s Division I National Championship in more than 40 years.

The second game of the Championship event at Infinity Park was the tightest in years, went down to the wire, and featured six capped Men’s Eagles. Young Hanco Germishuys, an Eagle and All-American at multiple levels, was named Most Valuable Player for his 80-minute performance.

“I’m speechless. It’s unreal for me,” the 20-year-old said of the individual accolade. “I couldn’t have done it without these guys; they’re my brothers.”

MEN’S DI CROWN EARNED BY MYSTIC RIVER IN HEAVY-HITTING FINAL AGAINST AUSTIN BLACKS

GLENDALE, Colo. – The Austin Blacks suffered a second consecutive USA Rugby Emirates Airline Club Men’s Division I National Championship defeat Saturday, a 45-33 losing effort to Mystic River.

The final match of the day at Infinity Park was a thriller from start to finish, with momentum swinging back and forth through 80 minutes. For Austin there will be disappointment, but Mystic’s title has been a year in the making following a Semifinal defeat to eventual Champion New York Athletic Club in 2015.

“This means everything,” Mystic River Josh Smith said. “We really thought we had a shot this year. We had some players turn down PRO contracts for this moment. When we got through [the Quarterfinals and Semifinals in] Pittsburgh there was a lot of talk about what these guys gave up, and we got the job done today.”

THE PAST REPEATS ITSELF: LIFE WEST GLADIATRIX BEAT RALEIGH VENOM FOR THE WOMEN’S  DIVISION I TITLE

Glendale, CO.- The Life West Gladiatrix once again reign supreme over the Women’s Division I Clubs, as they win their second Division I title in as many years, beating the Raleigh Venom in a repeat of last year’s championship match.

“It was a pretty special for us, in the sense that we played for eighty minutes that considering that we put a performance in that we were very happy with,” noted Adriaan Ferris Life West’s head coach, after the game.  
The game kicked off to a lightning quick start, with the Gladiatrix scoring twice in the first ten minutes to get out to a 12-0 lead. It looked like there may have only been one team in it at the beginning, but Raleigh took a look at themselves and came right back out after conceding the second try and seemed like a new team. They immediately applied pressure to the reigning champs on both sides of the ball. In the 17th minute the pressure paid off when Jazamine Grey crossed for the first of her two tries in two minutes. Just like that the Venom had taken over the momentum and put themselves right back into the thick of it.

GLADIATRIX RESPOND TO DI CHALLENGE IN TITLE-WINNING CAMPAIGN

GLENDALE, Colo. – Life West Gladiatrix captured a second National Championship in as many years Saturday, beating Raleigh Venom, 39-17, for the 2017 USA Rugby Emirates Airline Women’s Division I title at Infinity Park.

Capped Eagle Elizabeth Cairns was named Most Valuable Player in the Final, one year removed from the Northern California team’s Division II National Championship victory. Fellow international Megan Foster was named MVP in last year’s game and led her side with nine points Saturday evening.

“We try to be a very dynamic team, move it sideline to sideline, and want everyone to power through tackles, pass, and do everything to make themselves threats on the field,” Gladiatrix prop Catie Benson said. “Raleigh pressured us from the beginning, which we hadn’t seen during the season. They made great tackles and were very physical.”

WOMEN’S DI NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP STAYS IN SEATTLE AS SARACENS BEAT CHICAGO NORTH SHORE

GLENDALE, Colo. – Seattle Saracens ended a long season with a 36-19 win against Chicago North Shore Saturday to take the USA Rugby Emirates Airline Club Women’s Division I National Championship trophy home to where it has been held for the past year.

The team out of Washington did not have the same kind of attacking success Life West had in the DII Final that opened the Championship weekend at Infinity Park, but played smart and capitalized on scoring opportunities to steadily build a lead over North Shore.

Chicago had to deal without the ball for plenty of the first half, and succumbed to several penalties that were turned into three-point penalty kicks. North Shore cut into the 9-0 deficit in the 24th minute, with Kadie Sanford going over from successive set pieces.

JUBILATION FOR THE DENVER BARBARIANS,HEARTBREAK FOR  THE DETROIT TRADESMEN

Glendale, CO.- The Denver Barbarians have another piece of silverware to add to their already packed trophy cabinet, as they beat the Detroit Tradesmen in dramatic fashion, 39-38, to claim the Men’s Division II Club National Championship.

It was a close affair with the Barbarians trailing for most of the match, only to snatch a one point lead with three minutes left in the game, and ride it out until the full-time siren sounded.  After the match Brian Erichsen, head coach of the Denver Barbarians noted, “This feels pretty awesome. Whether you win by one or fifty it doesn’t matter, but when it’s by one- wow.”

 Wow was right, it was an intense affair and one that saw to evenly matched teams engaged in a game that all those in attendance are unlikely to forget. The game got off to a furious pace, both teams declared their intentions early, but poor handling, cost each side points in the first ten minutes. It was never a question of if but when a team begin the scoring fiesta. Detroit opened the scoring in the 11th minute, and their celebrations were short lived as Denver hit right back; and so began the story of the first half. Every time the Tradesmen crossed the line the Barbarians were right behind them and then the Tradesmen would score again. After the first try of the game was scored there was never more than a five-minute gap in the first half before the other would respond. At the end of the first stanza a missed conversion is all that separated the two teams. Detroit lead, 21-19.

GLENDALE, Colo. – A winger’s hat trick of tries highlighted Life Running Eagles’ 50-24 defeat of St. Louis Bombers Sunday at Infinity Park in the 2017 USA Rugby Emirates Airline Men’s Division II Club National Championship.

Jonathan Poole scored thrice for the Running Eagles in the span of 30 game minutes, while Most Valuable Player David Gannon dotted down twice in the first half as Life built a 24-10 lead through 40 minutes. The D2 Championship is the first for Life, but not the first for the program at all levels, with several players unavailable for the Final due to Life commitments elsewhere.

“It’s been a long season,” the MVP said after the post-match celebrations. “It just feels great to get it over the line. Couldn’t have done it with a better group of lads.”

GLENDALE, Colo. – Tempe Old Devils’ second trip to the USA Rugby Emirates Airline Club Men’s Division II National Championship Final in three years ended with a trophy ceremony Sunday with a 54-21 defeat of Detroit Tradesmen.

Tempe lost to eventual Champion Life West in the 2015 Semifinals, a year after a Final defeat to Rocky Gorge in Madison, Wisc. Sunday’s match at Infinity Park was not one-sided, but well-managed by an experienced Tempe side.

Detroit’s attack had been hyped leading up to the Final, and there were times when the backs showed their skill sets, but Tempe controlled the match from the beginning.

CHARLOTTE LEADS FROM THE FRONT TO HOLD OFF ST.LOUIS  SABRES FOR A HISTORIC WIN

Glendale, CO.- History was made today as the women from Charlotte Rugby, were able to stave off a determined St. Louis Sabres side, 46-28 winning the first national championship in their club’s history.

After the match, Charlotte’s coach Brad Richard was full of praise for both his team and opposition, “It’s a huge honor to represent the Charlotte Rugby Club…It’s extremely meaningful… St. Louis are and awesome team and were great opponents.”  

The first half was a saw both teams dominate periods of play, but Charlotte were able to put themselves in the driver’s seat early and ride it into a half time lead.  The game started with strong running from both teams, but mistakes, and a failure to clear the ball from their 22 kept the Sabres on their heels for most of the opening stages of the game. Both teams looked to swing the ball from sideline to sideline and use their speed on the outside to burn their opposition; However, it was a perfectly timed line from Charlotte’s number eight and eventual MVP, Sara Davis, up the middle of the field that led to the first points of the contest. Charlotte didn’t have to wait long before adding to their early lead, as just five minutes later they extended their lead due to poor discipline around the rucks.

GLENDALE, Colo. – Life West scored 12 tries in a 66-20 defeat of reigning title-holder Wisconsin Saturday to win the USA Rugby Emirates Airline Women’s Division II National Championship in its first year in the competition.

Beginning a five-match championship weekend at Infinity Park, the Gladiatrix ticked the scoreboard from the opening minute of the match to the end of the 80th, starving Wisconsin of the possession necessary to launch a proper title defense.

Catherine Benson and Angelina Lomu each recorded a hat trick of tries, with Lomu scoring her first of three in the first minute of the match. Life West found several gaps in the Wisconsin defense from the opening restart and the first pass out to the wing landed in Lomu’s hands for a broken Grace Hovde tackle and 40-meter run to the try zone.

Glendale, CO.- The Austin Blacks D3 made history today as they become the first D3 side to win a National Championship, and are the first Austin Blacks side to win a National Championship, as they take down Long Island Rugby 33-18.

This was the club’s sixth attempt at winning a national championship, and have finally won it all meant a lot to the club as head coach Ryan Little explained, “It means everything we’ve been here five times before and always came up second.”

It was a slow and sloppy start to the day, as both teams looked to play expansively to begin, but dropped balls slowed the progress of either team. Despite the handling, Austin was able to set up camp in the Long Island half and continually apply pressure. The Long Island boys were able hold them off, to start, but in a sign of the difficulties to come they were unable to clear the ball out of their half. Austin eventually capitalizing and got on the board first through a penalty. This woke the men from New York up and they stormed down the field and through a 43-meter penalty were able to draw level.
