GRR: Archbishop Moeller
High school rugby programs around the country keep trying to find a way to get to the next step.
St. Ignatius won the 2021 Rugby Ohio Boys Super Elite final defeated a dogged Moeller HS side 22-8 Saturday night at Fortess Obetz in the Columbus area.
In a game that seemed to be on a knife edge the whole way, Ignatius took its scoring chances slightly better than Moeller, the Cincinnati side kept the result in doubt until the very end.
Archbishop Moeller HS in Ohio is hosting a season warmup tournament for the second year in a row and with rugby being so rare for the last 12 months it's a welcome opener for teams from three states.
Archbishop Moeller enjoyed a good weekend at Nash Bash in Tennessee, going 3-0.
Moeller defeated the Chiefs out of Illinois (29-5), Clarksville out of Tennessee (38-7), and Harpeth, also out of Tennessee, with a much closer score of 7-5.
