GRR: Rugby NY
Here is the latest list of Boys all-star teams slated to play in the Northeast Regional Cup.
The tournament will be June 18-19 at the Lincoln Park Bowl in Albany, NY.
On a rainy June Sunday Xavier HS defeated rivals Pelham HS to win the Rugby NY Boys DI title.
In the rain, Xavier played a very structured style of percentage rugby, and waiting for chances to attack wide. While Xavier looked to pressure Pelham in the mauls, Pelham defended those very well, forcing the Xavier backs to do more.
Pelham and Xavier will meet for the Rugby NY Boys HS championship after both won semifinals Saturday.
The National Championships may be done, but there are still plenty of playoffs to pay attention to this weekend.
In Connecticut, Fairfield Prep defeated Simsbury 36-33 in the single-school semis. Simsbury led 26-12 at halftime, but Prep stormed back to win it in the final minutes.
