GRR: Queens University of Charlotte
Davenport edged AIC in a tense NIRA D2 clash in Rochester, NY over the weekend to make an early statement in that division.
Army West Point men's rugby defeated Queens University Charlotte 28-12 Friday night at Army's Anderson Rugby Complex to move to 2-0 in the Rugby East.
The high profile of the R7CC Sevens is a massive chance for some of the women's programs involved to get a PR boost, and one of those has to be Queens University.
West Point held off a pretty tenacious Queens University Charlotte Saturday in a game Army is using to gear up for the D1A playoffs.
Queens put a bit of a scare into Army and tested the Black Knights with their speed into the breakdown and their kicking game. But a strong early part of the second half saw Army pull away, and then hold on.
One of the great links about playoffs and tours and non-conference games is that you get matchups you'd never plan for.
NCR's D1 semifinal between Penn State and Queens University Charlotte is one of those games.
"Penn State is a storied program with 60 years of history, whereas Queens has not hit the five-year mark," said Queens Head Coach Frank McKinney.
