GRR: Central Washington
February brings a little more busy group of games in D1A with Central Washington at Arizona the highlight.
NEW YORK City (Varsity Cup Release) – The 2017 Penn Mutual Varsity Cup Rugby Championship kicks off once again this April with 14 teams vying in the April postseason to advance to May’s championship final.
Central Washington University put a little bit of a sense of worry in the minds of BYU, but ultimately the Cougars were a little bigger and a little fiercer than the Wildcats and prevailed 58-27 at BYU’s South Field Saturday.
Central Washington University’s men’s team took a trip south to the San Francisco Bay Area to play Olympic Club in a warmup game for both teams.
It was a useful test for the Wildcats are they needed to get outside and play some tough, experienced competition. Olympic Club came away 19-15 winners at the Cal Maritime Academy campus.
Despite the score, a very good game occurred between Central Washington and BYU on Saturday. The pair are inarguably the two best DI teams that are competing in-season in the West right now, and the friendly offered insight into their progress as they build toward the DI Elite championship in the spring.
