Goff Rugby Report's Alex Goff speaks with Luke Persanis and North Westall of Pelham HS about their first National Championships appearance.
Pelham opened up their tournament with a 24-14 win over South Doyle in Tier II, and then followed that up with a 22-12 win over Brownsburg on Friday to set up a Tier II final against West End on Saturday.
Day Two at the Boys HS Rugby National Championships is done for Tier II with West End and Pelham facing off in Saturday’s final.
Pelham HS opened up their league season in New York with an impressive 39-3 defeat of Fordham Prep.
Pelham HS out of New York finished up their trip to Florida with a 38-10 defeat of the Cape Pirates.
Pelham, having already put RBMA to the sword, mixed up the team's lineup somewhat, and ran out to a 33-3 halftime lead, before the subs were run on.
Pelham HS out of New York traveled to Florida and faced the Academy of Rugby Excellence (ARE).
ARE is a select-side made up of players from the Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, and Cape Pirates. As a select-side, ARE had its pick of talent in the area, but at the same time, Pelham was coming in as a relatively settled side.
