GRR: Minnesota Youth Rugby
The Chargers of Cedar Grove, Wisc. put many on notice with a solid outing this weekend at the Border Battle in the Wisconsin Dells.
Nate Augspurger was among one of the bench players with the USA team that didn't get much time on the field, but he cherished the time he got.
North Suburban won the Minnesota Girls High School State 7s Championship, bettering longtime powerhouse Armstrong 29-10 in the final. Armstrong had defeated Hopkins 36-7 in the semifinals, while North Suburban blanked a combination side of Orono, South Metro, and Minnetonka 51-0 for the title berth.
In the first game of the Minnesota Youth Rugby Boys HS 7s season, Minnetonka edged Hopkins 31-28.
Edina won the Boys DI HS championship in Minnesota in dramatic fashion, scoring a late try to go up by one and then holding off Duluth in a furious goal-line stand to end the game.
"This was like one of those Hollywood endings," said Edina Coach Chris Babiash. "Just an amazing game."
