GRR: St. Joseph's
St. Jose[h's has won the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference after a 36-0 shutout of Rutgers.
The Hawks exploded for five tries in the first half and looked set to gallop away, but cruised through the second half as they look ahead now to the NCR playoffs.
As expected the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference is a little confusing, and this week's results don't make it any more predictable.
St. Joseph's University Head Coach Dan Yarusso is stepping down from the team he has coached since 2013.
Two accomplished DIAA teams that know each other well are facing off Sunday in one of the fall semifinals.
The two undefeated teams in the Mid-Atlantic Men’s DIAA conference meet up this weekend as St. Joseph’s faces West Chester.
This has developed into a very nice rivalry, as St. Joe’s Head Coach Dan Yarusso continues to build long-term success in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Bjorn Haglid hasn’t been at West Chester as long, but his arrival has spurred West Chester to new heights.
