GRR: Life University
It was a day of two very different games in women’s D1 Elite, but in the end we know who the top two are going into the playoffs.
Lindenwood slammed BYU 77-5 in a game that saw the Lions rest one or two of their more experienced players and still log almost a point a minute.
GRR's #2 Life University defeated #1 Lindenwood on the road in St. Charles, Mo. Saturday.
It wasn't really a surprise in that Life has only lost to Lindenwood once (albeit earlier this season) in 15s, and often plays very well at Lindenwood. This is what happened on Saturday night. Life came in girded for payback and edged Lindenwood 32-26.
Another couple of teams step into the fray in college rugby as the University of Arizona gets set to play Grand Canyon this weekend.
College rugby games are still few and far between as breaking out of COVID shutdowns and keeping everyone free from positive tests has been very difficult.
It’s round 2 for Lindenwood vs Life in the Women’s D1 Elite this week, while the Central Washington Wildcats try to take down the Antelopes of Grand Canyon.
Lindenwood rode a pretty snappy final 30 minutes to put away Life in St. Charles, Mo. February 20, but this return engagement in Marrietta, Ga. promises to be a tighter affair.
