GRR: Fairfield Pegasi
Fairfield Pegasi won their third straight summer 7s tournament, capping off a 15-game undefeated streak with a win at the New Haven 7s.
Fairfield brought in a deep squad to their final tournament of the summer season, with players from every grade level.
The Fairfield Rugby Club won the High School bracket at Tri-State 7 this past weekend thanks to some outstanding defense, only allowing two tries throughout the day.
The day started off with Fairfield matched up against Staples 1. Fairfield's smothering defense was on display early, never allowing Staples to reach Fairfield’s 22.
The Fairfield Rugby Club won the U18 Boys Division at the Warrior 7s over the weekend.
Taking part in a robust U18 division that included 12 teams from four states, Fairfield started off with big wins against Hempfield and St. Joes. As the day went on, the competition became harder, and the Minutemen out of the DC area proved a difficult opponent.
Staples and Fairfield Pegasi clashed in Connecticut over the weekend in a game that was as much about pecking order in the state as anything else.
With Staples coming off a close win over Greenwich, they were looking to consolidate that with a win over Fairfield. Meanwhile, Fairfield had started well and had Staples and Greenwich in their sights.
