GRR: St. Paul's
Brother Martin and St. Paul's played a competitive and entertaining Louisiana Boys HS final to cap off a great day of rugby in New Orleans.
The game was held after Major League Rugby's NOLA Gold came from behind to beat the Toronto Arrows 22-14.
The high school game was no less intriguing.
Three major state championships, two official and one unofficial, we concluded this weekend.
Brother Martin and St. Paul's will meet for the Louisiana State High School title next week after they won semifinals Saturday.
Although Southeast Louisiana had received over 12 inches of rain in the past four days, the rain paused long enough to allow Brother Martin and St Paul's to play at Hunter Stadium on the St. Paul's campus in the final week of Louisiana Rugby's regular HS season.
In a clash of unbeaten boys HS teams in Louisiana, St Paul's was handed a convincing defeat by the now 3-0 Brother Martin Saturday.
St. Paul's played a tough match and in fact had Brother Martin on their heels early on, but the Brother Martin goal line defense held firm and forced a knock-on to keep it 0-0.
