In a clash of two top-10 HS teams, Penn HS edged Fishers 28-25 in Rugby Indiana league play over the weekend.
The game was slated to be played at Fishers, but weather made that field unplayable, and so Fishers Rugby requested the game be moved to Penn's fields in Elkhart, Ind. That accommodation made, the game was on and both teams brought the physicality.
The Midwest Boys HS Championships kicks off this weekend and it's a new-look tournament.
Previous years have seen the tournament split into HS Club and Single-School brackets. However, that has not been the best option, especially as Royal Irish has won fairly easily on the club side.
The Indiana Hawks, Indiana Speed, and Celtic Elite met up in a girls Midwest All-Star Challenge this past weekend in what is basically a preview of the upcoming Midwest RCT.
The Indiana Hawks won both of their gams, beating the Speed 27-20 and the Celtic Elite 32-26. The Celtic Elite defeated the Speed to go 1-1, and the Celtic Elite JV Girls went 2-0.
Royal Irish capped off a torrid few weeks with a 19-15 defeat of Penn to win the Indiana state championship.
Penn HS put in a big score Saturday in the Indiana Boys HS Super League, beating Hamilton SE 97-5.
Strength in th scrums allowed Penn to launch their back row attack. That, coupled with being able to steal four scrum put-ins, gave Penn a nice attacking platform.
Head Coach Bart Bottorff said he was pleased to see his team move the ball unselfishly.
