GRR: Rugby Ohio
The Midwest Boys HS champions brackets are set, with 22 teams playing in three different brackets at the Moose Rugby Grounds in Elkhart, Ind.
Ohio rivals St. Edward and St. Ignatius met Thursday night in the first of what is likely to be at least two, and maybe more meetings this season, and St. Edward ran away with a convincing 31-5 victory.
These two teams battle each other each year and the game are usually very close. Not so this time around, as St. Ed's scored five tries and had a handful called held-up in-goal.
St. Ignatius made it three wins in three in their Texas tour, defeating defending state champs Westlake 22-14 Wednesday night.
St. Ignatius won their opening game of their Texas tour in large part thanks to some precise kicking and smart game management from flyhalf Andrew Baldado.
The senior flyhalf was singled out by several observers as a key performer for the Ohio state champions, and Head Coach Dan Arbeznik agrees.
