GRR: Liberty Conference
It was a day of crossover non-conference games and some conference openers in DIA rugby Saturday.
On the crossovers, Trinity continued its winning ways on its tour of the USA, beating Iona 61-12 in what Iona head coach Bruce McLane called a "great learning experience for Iona."
Nandipha Dube and Cam DiGiorgio scored tries for the Gaels in the loss.
Two undefeated teams in Liberty Empire faced each other this weekend, but only Syracuse finished the game with that record in tack. Like last weekend, the Hammerheads started strong, with Dermot Heavey touching down a loose ball on three minutes.
Thirteen teams from the Liberty Conference in D1A, as well as AIC, will assemble this weekend at Fairfield University for a series of Challenge matches.
For its first Liberty Conference game, the Binghamton Men’s Rugby was hosting Colgate University, on a bright and sunny day ideal for rugby but with the heat as a potential factor impacting players on both sides.
As usual it's a bit of a hedge maze to navigate the US DI college, but we've still got to navigate it.
Right now we have 70 teams in D1A, the most ever. They are split into the following conferences (or not conferences). We've got some links to more detailed articles if you want them.
