St. Thomas Aquinas continued where they left off with a very impressive 43-5 defeat of their longtime rivals the Kansas City Junior Blues.

Aquinas put a lot of the pieces together against a Junior Blues team still looking for the special combination. With their scrums working nicely and leading to several tightheads, and the forwards worked hard in the breakdown, recycling ball and opening space for an effective backline. 

Aaron Goodwin and Jonathan Contreras led that forward effort, while in the backline Brock Kluempers, Payton Ptasnik, and Nick Jurczak worked the backline attack well.

Sa'o Siavi'i was also hugely influential and Bennett Bodenhamer earned player of the game honors.honors.

Aquinas now looks to an up-and-coming Kingfishers team, a team that has recorded some solid results including a defeat of KC. 

“We have some improving to do and some work to do but it was a good win for us,” said Aquinas Head Coach Tim Kluempers.
