Connecticut Boys All-Stars Turn Heads

The HS All_Star season finishes up this weekend, but already we have a good idea of which teams have been especially strong.

And perhaps the one team to turn heads has been Connecticut. The Rugby CT team blew through the Northeast RCT with a 4-0 record. Drawing from players mostly from Greenwich, Aspetuck, and Staples, the Connecticut team outscored four opponents 161-24, with two shutouts in Boys Tier 1 play:

Connecticut 26 DC 0
Connecticut 52 Rugby PA 12
Connecticut 43 New York 12
Connecticut 40 New Jersey 0

Led by the halfback combination of Lorenzi Villani and Sebastiano Villani, and with Ben Van Der Merwe and Jacob Rob playing especially well in the backs, Connecticut also got big performances from prop/flanker Ray Weiner, and HS All American lock Charlie Overton.
