In the third meeting of these two teams, Regis Jesuit defeated the Palmer HS Terrors 33-17 this past weekend to win the inaugural Boys Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association (CIRA) championship.
As the Boys HS Rugby National Championships loom, and the much-anticipated seedings loom even closer (!), here's a look at what happened over the weekend.
When Valor Christian said it would enter a team in the new Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association, heads turned.
Regis Jesuit defeated Palmer HS in convincing fashion on Wednesday evening 51-19 to improve to 4-0 in the Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association.
It was a impressive showing by Regis, but Head Coach Anthony Mattacchione said the score somewhat flattered his team. Palmer, he said. ""are a physical team and the wear and tear of 70 minutes showed on both sides."
Palmer HS upended Monarch 22-5 Saturday in Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association (CIRA) action Saturday, in a result that wasn't necessarily a surprise, but wasn't exactly expected, either.
Monarch was coming off a win over Valor Christian, while Palmer's opener had been canceled, so there wasn't much to go on.
