LVI CRC Qualifier Day 1 Wrapup

3-0 day for Notre Dame College. David Barpal photo.

Here are the scores and standings from the Men's CRC Qualifiers at the Las Vegas Invitational.

As expected, AIC dominated play in a relatively easy pool. Notre Dame College and Utah also cruised to 3-0 records.

But, there were a few shakeups and surprises.

1. There was never a 4th team in Pool E, so the other three teams there got 14-0 forfeits.

2. Life West was ousted late due to the fact the team doesn't really have a lot of undergraduate students - they should never have been allowed in the CRC Qualifier to start with.

3. A combination of paperwork snafus, promises not kept, arguments, and the ultimate resignation of their coach meant New England College did not show and those games were also 14-0 forfeits.

In addition, Delaware was upset by Colgate in a bit of an early shocker. But somehow the Blue Hens managed to hand Air Force the Zoomies first loss, 21-14, late in Day One play, just barely securing a Cup Quarterfinal spot. Without NEC to contend with, Lindenwood-Belleville did the job against Dixie State and Ithaca to go a somewhat surprising (but only somewhat) 3-0. Harvard was perhaps the most surprising, getting past St. Joseph's to win Pool F.

AIC didn't just go 3-0, they averaged almost 40 points and had a points difference about twice that of the next-best team.
