GRR: Regis Jesuit
In the third meeting of these two teams, Regis Jesuit defeated the Palmer HS Terrors 33-17 this past weekend to win the inaugural Boys Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association (CIRA) championship.
Regis Jesuit defeated Palmer HS in convincing fashion on Wednesday evening 51-19 to improve to 4-0 in the Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association.
It was a impressive showing by Regis, but Head Coach Anthony Mattacchione said the score somewhat flattered his team. Palmer, he said. ""are a physical team and the wear and tear of 70 minutes showed on both sides."
Regis Jesuit opened up their CIRA season with an impressive victory over new team Valor Christian.
Regis had seen last week's opener canceled, and were certainly ready for this game.
Regis Jesuit edged East HS Saturday to win the Rugby Colorado Boys HS Championship.
The game, played at Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo., was a thriller. Sophomore Eddie Maxfield broke a 14-14 tieby scoring with less than a minute to go, and the conversion iced it for Regis.
East HS opened up its Rugby Colorado account with a well-taken 26-21 over Regis Jesuit in a repeat of last year's final.
This was the first 2019 league match for both teams and was also the 14th annual Boot Bowl, played for a trophy made out of East Head Coach Bill Baer's actual rugby boot. Yes, really.
