Herriman HS Hawaiian champion Kahuku HS this past week in the opener for Kahuku's tour of Utah.
Herriman used some big plays and a deep bench to come back from behind for a 34-25 victory over United, in a game that was yet another classic between the two teams in Utah Youth Rugby action.
Herriman came in to the game unbeaten on the season, while United has been riding high from several quality wins from a very experienced side.
Herriman defeated East HS 38-14 in Utah action that sets the team up nicely for two tough games this week - United and Kahuku.
It was a very tight game in the first half. East did well to take care of possession and were patient in scoring two tries. Herriman tried to force the issue and made some mistakes, and it was evident they were a bit slow coming back from spring break.
Herriman held onto its top 5 ranking with a defeat of #9 Snow Canyon Saturday in Utah Youth Rugby action.

Herriman defeated United 30-24 Friday in a non-league Utah Youth matchup in Alpine, Utah.
