USA South Teams, Mexico Strong At RAN

Day Two of the Rugby Americas North U19 Championships was a good day for USA Rugby South.

The Women's 10-a-side team (that's the format used throughout RAN for women's U19s) beat St. Lucia 17-10, Curacao 62-0, and Trinidad & Tobago 45-0 to go 3-0. St. Lucia is perhaps the surprise of the tournament and went 2-1 on the day. Aside from USA South, no team was 3-0 on the day. Jamaica and Mexico went into the final game of Friday 2-0, but tied 12-12.

USA South 3 0 0 124 10 114 9
St. Lucia 2 1 0 45 29 16 6

Barbados 0 3 0 12 108 -96 0

The men's U19 team is into the final as expected. The Panthers shut out a powerful Jamaica team 22-0 in the final pool game to take their pool, while Mexico shut out Cayman Islands 26-0 to win Pool B.
