Rugby Texas had a relatively quiet weekend league-wise, but there were some interesting results nonetheless. 

We’ll have more on Timber Creek’s defeat of St. Pius X later. Woodlands hosted Aberdare from Wales, and beat the tourists 26-17.

Allen continued their strong run of form with a 59-14 defeat of Rock Rugby and stayed in 1st in the Dallas Fort Worth conference.

Lake Travis beat Jesuit Dallas in a really good contest 24-8. That result allowed LT to keep pace in the Central with Westlake, which beat the Dallas Harlequins Colts 40-24.

In Houston West, Katy slammed Kingwood and Cy-Fair beat Lamar to close things up. They join St. Pius in the mix there.

And in Houston East, with Woodlands not playing a league game, St. Thomas v Memorial took on much importance for a shaken St. Thomas team.

St. Thomas put together an improved effort after last weeks tough loss to St. Pius X at home. Though not a polished or accurate effort, the Eagles scored eight tries in dispatching Memorial with relative ease, 48-5.

Standouts were Clay Reidy and Sam Yeboah in the forwards, Riley Bishop and Eli Young in the backs and Griffin Maat, who started at 13 and then moved to No. 8 to replace standout Michael Gentempo for the second half. Despite the loss, Memorial's outside center Cole Reinhart was very active around the field, put in some bone-jarring hits, and was an effective runner.
