DMV Takes HS 7s at CRC

DMV United won the Boys HS 7s Elite Bracket at the CRC 7s weekend, defeating the Utah Cannibals 26-14 in the final.

DMV, which draws from teams in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area (hence the name), defeated West Shore, Rhino Rugby Academy, and Greenwich in a very tough Pool A on Saturday, and then took down West Chester Turks Head 26-0 in the semis.

Utah, meanwhile, edged Rhino 10-7 in the semis.

DMV's defense was superb through much of the tournament, while Jesse Capriotti and Chase Schor Haskin led the offensive effort. Capriotti scored two tries in the final, including one when Schor Haskin nabbed a restart in the air and offloaded to Capriotti for the try.  Schor Haskin and Capriotti scored five tries apiece over the course of the weekend. 

DMV was strong in phase play with Campbell Johnstone, Robert Figley, and Owen Sheehy also all playing well in what was a very high-level tournament.

In other action, Malvern Prep completed a strong weekend to win the Boys Open Bracket. Malvern beat Burrell, Bethesda, and Shanahan in pool play, and then beat Shanahan again in the quarters. That set up a semifinal against Media, which Malvern won 29-0, and then Prep took the final over LaSalle 22-0. In the final three knockout rounds, Malvern Prep outscore their opponents 77-7.
