GRR: York College Pa
The Mid-Atlantic Men's DII College playoffs started last week, but they didn't actually happen.
Villanova beat York 40-21, while Lehigh beat Shippensburg 23-3.
York College edged Scranton 26-19 Saturday to lock up a place in the Mid-Atlantic Men’s DII college conference semis.
Led by an excellent performance by the forward pack, and with a smart tactical approach, York came out strong and scored early.
We know almost all of the teams that will play in the Men's National DII College quarterfinals, after results this weekend; here's the rundown:
Rowan University won the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference championship with a 32-17 defeat of York Sunday.
York pulled off a slight upset on Saturday in the semis, defeated IUP 39-22. It was a bit of a shocker to IUP given that Indiana had won the earlier meeting of the two teams 29-22. But York got up early and kept the pressure on. Rowan, meanwhile, took care of Scranton 50-7.
The Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference (MARC) is always a tight one and it looks to be much the same this year as Week #1 kicks off.
