GRR: Utah Youth Rugby
The queens of Utah Rugby were knocked off their throne at least for a weekend in Utah Youth Rugby's girls HS fall 7s.

United swept the field Saturday in the opening weekend of Utah Youth Rugby's fall 7s.
The United boys team was dominant, winning three games by shutout. Their only close one was against Brighton/Copper Hills at 19-14, but that was the last game of the day and United was already 3-0 and Brighton/Copper Hills was already 0-3. Mountain Ridge did well to finish the day 3-1.
