GRR: South Carolina
Wando, Greenville HS, and Columbia Area (Irmo) all won in the opening weekend of the South Carolina HS rugby season.
Greenville edged their rivals, South Greenville, 13-10, while Irmo had little trouble with Lexington 27-3.
The Charlotte Tigers defeated Wando 15-7 to move to 2-0 in the new Mid-South Independent Rugby League (MSIRL).
This is the second time that the Tigers have defeated a defending state champ - Wando won South Carolina last spring, and the other team the Tigers beat, the East Cobb Trojans, were Georgia state champs last season.
Georgia's Phoenix club battled through for a 30-26 win over Columbia Area (aka Irmo) in the third game of the Mid-South Independent Rugby League (MSIRL) this weekend.
In a game played in good conditions after some rough winter weather in the region in previous days, neither team could pull too far ahead.
A new Boys HS league is being set up in the Southeast, with nine teams from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia committing to play in the new competition.
