GRR: Southern Virginia
The top teams keep winning in the Chesapeake, but there is a showdown coming.
Mary Washington hosted Virginia Tech Rugby Saturday and came away 76-12 winners. These two programs have a long and respect-filled rivalry but the COVID shutdown has been tough on the club teams in the Chesapeake.
The US Naval Academy men's team made a number of lineup changes this week as they faced a physical Southern Virginia University side in a non-conference game.
Finally Southern Virginia and Mount St. Mary's will be able to take the field this weekend.
SVU has had Queens University and the Naval Academy on their calendar only to see the games canceled. But word is this weekend's clash is going to happen. The Mount has been working toward this game and at one point had to quarantine some players because of a positive test.
In Queens University’s run to a national DII title in the fall of 2019, the Royals lost only once—they get to face that team again now that they return to the field on Saturday.
Note: A positive COVID test on one of the teams has canceled this game.
