GRR: Fort Hunt
In a clash of the two strongest HS club teams in Virginia, Vienna held off Fort Hunt 19-10.
"It was a super-physical game," said Fort Hunt Head Coach Dale Roach. "Strong defense from both teams and hard running. We look forward to seeing them again in the playoffs."
Siena College served as neutral-site hosts for Fairfield Prep (Conn.) and Canisius (NY).
It was a big win for Fairfield as they ran out 65-0 winners. Charles Dooley, Nick Vittoria, and Wally Wuchiski all scored two tries each.
Gonzaga won the Gonzaga Classic and did so in fairly emphatic style, defeating Fort Hunt 45-3 in the championship game.
In a game that was postponed to Monday due to weather, #2 school team Gonzaga defeated #5 HS club team Fort Hunt 48-7.
Fort Hunt Head Coach Dale Roach was pretty clear on how that game went. “They were very good in every phase of the game,” said Roach. “When we made mistakes they made us pay.”
It was early days still for both teams but Gonzaga has a lot of the pieces.
Aspetuck played Fort Hunt last week on a bright Saturday in New York in what was a welcome high-rankings meeting for both.
"We appreciate Fort Hunt setting up the match and giving both teams an early opportunity playing a top-level game," said Aspetuck Head Coach Ray Weiner.
