GRR: West Chester University
AIC beat West Chester to win the NIRA DII final because they refused to allow themselves to ponder defeat, and because they finally had accepted the truth about themselves.
Virginia Tech proved themselves worthy opponents after a rough regular season, beating Boise State to make the NCR DIAA final in Houston.
The Hokies had finished 5th in the Chesapeake with a 2-4 record, but with the top teams in that conference going to the DI playoffs, there was a chance in the DIAA playoffs for Tech to make their mark.
The NIRA playoffs are upon us, with Finals Weekend at West Point set for November 20-21.
Here’s how it’s all looking:
As expected the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference is a little confusing, and this week's results don't make it any more predictable.
It was an interesting day in the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference Saturday.
St. Joseph's, rated by many coaches in the conference as the front-runner, lost 21-17 to Rowan to slip to 2-1. Rowan, which beat Delaware last week and Temple the week before is now 3-0.
