It’s Lindenwood vs Kutztown and Iona vs Dartmouth in the Men’s Premier semifinals on Memorial Day in New Orleans and it’s a study in styles of play.
Sometimes tournaments and events get a little help from the rugby gods, and it seemed that way Sunday at the R7CC.
Army West Point will play in the D1A Final April 30 in Houston after the Black Knights held off a determined charge from Lindenwood to win Friday night's D1A semifinal at the US Military Academy.
Army led by as much as 16, 19-3, but two second-half Lindenwood tries put the Lions within a score at 19-14.
The D1A playoffs are down to semifinals, with a chance for someone in the East to make their first-ever D1A final.
