GRR: Washington University
Principia has taken hold of the Gateway Conference Eastern Division with a convincing victory over Washington University.
WashU is much improved and went into the game 3-0 and has been playing some solid rugby this fall.
We are enjoying seeing a few upstart Men's D2 College teams this season which is gratifying to us at Goff Rugby Report World Headquarters because it gives us something to talk about on the daily 90-minute bullet train ride from home to HQ.
Shaking up expectations is good for the competition as a whole.
Hey wait a minute, what about Washington University?
Not considered a contender in a Gateway Conference that has had plenty of contenders, Washington has vaulted itself to the top of the conference pecking order with a 60-0 defeat of Maryville and, this past weekend, a somewhat shocking 45-15 defeat of #24 St. Louis University.
