Utah HS Fall 7s Kicks Off

United Girls were unbeaten.

Utah Youth Rugby opened up their fall 7s season with action for Boys HS in two divisions, plus Girls HS and Girls Middle School.

United started well. In the Girls HS bracket United beat Provo 20-5, Wasatch 34-0, Mountain Ridge 22-5, and Majestics 29-10 to go 4-0. It's not unusual for these teams, especially Provo, to beat United, so these winning margins are especially impressive.

Teulla Nawahine and Marlee Neiufi lead a really solid team performance that was strong in defense as well as with the ball. Newcomer Anya Chiara has turned heads in the early going.

Majestics looked powerful on offense with two big early wins and they also edged Provo by two.

Week 1 Girls HS Scores:
Wasatch 31-5 Mountain Ridge
United 20-5 Provo
Majestics 45-0 Wasatch

In Middle School action Majestics and Provo played each other, with Majestics getting the upper hand.

In the Boys HS brackets, the D2 division saw Rhinos 2 go 3-0, edging United by a point to stay perfect. Rhinos 1 and Mountain Ridge both went 2-0-1; Mountain Ridge and Rhinos tied 10-10 early on in Saturday's action.
