The US Merchant Marine Academy is now clear atop the Tri-State Conference after beating William Paterson 50-5 Saturday.
The result was an impressive one as WPU is certainly one of the major competitors in the Tri-State Men's DII conference, and to have Kings Point beat them by 45 points is a bit of a head-turner.

The Empire Conference kicks off league play this weekend with the top teams of recent years having been stung somewhat.
Syracuse was shut out by Buffalo a couple of weeks ago, albeit in a game where the Hammerheads had a good amount of possession and good field position. Syracuse will host Fordham on Sunday.
The Empire Conference may once again be Stony Brook’s to lose, but the other six teams are making a surge.
While Stony Brook plays a non-conference game against Rugby East power Kutztown, Colgate hosts Brockport, Syracuse welcomes Fordham, and the US Merchant Marina Academy plays at Binghamton.
Former United States Merchant Marina Academy rugby player Adam Satterfield was one of two US Marines killed Friday in a helicopter crash during a training exercise.
Satterfield was a standout lock forward for Kings Point, graduating from the Academy in 2011.
Stony Brook won the clash of undefeated teams in the Empire Rugby Conference as they defeated Kings Point 30-12 Friday evening.
Stony Brook started well in the early going and led 10-0 before Kings Point scored to make it 10-7. But Stony Brook pulled away with two tries to make it 17-7.
