Marcus Tupuola has been named Goff Rugby Report’s DIAA MVP Back for the fall of 2016.
The Notre Dame College fullback was a critical piece of an excellent Falcons season, during which NDC went 11-0 against intercollegiate competition and won the DIAA fall championship.
The East Coast Rugby Conference - ECRC - has named it's all conference selections.
Naturally, AIC and BC, which both logged a 7-0-1 record, dominate the selections, with 21 of the 30 1st and 2nd team players.
In the clash of the weekend to decide the ECRC, Boston College and American International College ended tied, 29-29, to leave both teams unbeaten in the conference.
In the end, AIC won the conference due to more bonus points over the course of the season, finishing 6-0-1, with 32 standings points, while BC was 6-0-1, with 31.
While AIC leads the ECRC, there’s still plenty of opportunity for other teams to catch up.
That chase is basically between NEC and Boston College. NEC sits at 3-1 and BC is 3-0, so this would be a battle for 2nd (at the moment).
In this week's Game Breakers, we look at the DI Men's College players who made an impact for their teams over the past weekend.
Bowling Green flanker McNamara was big on defense and became a crucial weapon for the Falcons in winning his teams own restarts, helping them to a 44-22 win over Ohio State.
