GRR: East HS Colorado
Rugby Colorado crowned its fall 7s champions this November with its usual girls competition and, for the first time, a boys championship too.
Since the 15s season ran late this year, there was no summer 7s for the boys so they played this fall.
East High School has won the Rugby Colorado state championship, defeating upstart Legend 36-5 in the final.
Regis Jesuit edged East HS Saturday to win the Rugby Colorado Boys HS Championship.
The game, played at Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo., was a thriller. Sophomore Eddie Maxfield broke a 14-14 tieby scoring with less than a minute to go, and the conversion iced it for Regis.
Colorado's East High School defeated Monarch HS 28-15 in the Infinity Park Stadium this past weekend in Rugby Colorado action.
The match was part of a doubleheader with the Glendale Raptors and San Diego Legion MLR match. It was also a rematch of Monarch's victory in the 2017 State Championship.
East HS opened up its Rugby Colorado account with a well-taken 26-21 over Regis Jesuit in a repeat of last year's final.
This was the first 2019 league match for both teams and was also the 14th annual Boot Bowl, played for a trophy made out of East Head Coach Bill Baer's actual rugby boot. Yes, really.
