St. Augustine, Union Co. Win In New Jersey

St. Augustine and the Union County Mudturtles secured Rugby New Jersey state titles over the weekend.

Led by a player-of-the-game performance from Andrew Whiteman, the Hermits battled in a tight game with Delbarton. Delbarton led 12-7 at halftime but St. Augustine came back, tied it 12-12 through a try from John Lawson, and then Whiteman scored the game-winner.

 

Giovanni Sabelli scored the Hermits' other try, with Mario Licciardello converting.

The Mudturtles won yet again in the HS Club bracket, beating Jersey Shore 38-24. For Jersey Shore, it was a solid season, as they only lost to the Mudturtles during league play. But Union County held firm.
