Since the inception of Fall 7s rugby in Utah, Herriman HS has won the series every year, and halfway through the season it looks as though that trend will continue.
Herriman edged Snow Canyon to take the Utah Youth Rugby Varsity Red final.
Scrumhalf Gavin Flint was named player of the game but the likes of Maea Leakehe, Jake Anderson, Fisher Jackson, and Taysan Hammer all played well for the Mustangs.
It's a championship weekend around Boys High School Rugby. Here's a look at some of the action going on:
Tennessee kicks off its playoffs. See more here. The playoss will last two weeks.
Herriman used some big plays and a deep bench to come back from behind for a 34-25 victory over United, in a game that was yet another classic between the two teams in Utah Youth Rugby action.
Herriman came in to the game unbeaten on the season, while United has been riding high from several quality wins from a very experienced side.
Herriman defeated East HS 38-14 in Utah action that sets the team up nicely for two tough games this week - United and Kahuku.
It was a very tight game in the first half. East did well to take care of possession and were patient in scoring two tries. Herriman tried to force the issue and made some mistakes, and it was evident they were a bit slow coming back from spring break.
Herriman held onto its top 5 ranking with a defeat of #9 Snow Canyon Saturday in Utah Youth Rugby action.

Herriman opened up its Utah Youth Rugby league season with two victories last week.
The Annual Ra Puriri Invitational took place this weekend at Snow Canyon High School in St.
Heading in to the Rugby Utah 2017 Fall 7s season, one would assume that 3-time defending champion Herriman would begin the year as favorites; after all, the Mustangs are the only team to ever win the Utah Fall 7s series, and had dropped only two contests in the past three fall seasons.
The West Valley Warriors are Utah HS Club champions, but it wasn’t easy.
Despite rolling pretty heavily through the Utah season, the Warriors faced a somewhat new-look Genesis team on Saturday for the final. West Valley had defeated Genesis 36-10 earlier in the season, but this time Genesis had a new plan.
Herriman HS opened up their season with a 29-27 loss to Highland that shook up the rankings and how most people looked at Utah's single-school league; Saturday they got some payback.
