Mount St. Mary's shut out Virginia Tech on the road this past weekend, taking the Hokies down 35-0.
The match kicked off in hot conditions. The Mount started the game off quickly with a try by Angelo Gurcsik five minutes in. The forwards provided a strong scrum platform for the backs to work the ball through the ends to release the senior wing Gurcsik on the edge.
There was an interesting development last week as NCR announced their postseason plans and started using the DIAA moniker, something they hadn't been using.
One of the more interesting results in men's college rugby was Brown defeating Fordham 38-14.
Fordham is looking like one of the stronger teams in the Liberty Conference, while Brown has been working its way up the Ivy League. Well, Brown took a big step here.
This week in our D2 rankings we see a lot of changes. Why? Because teams are playing.
Anyone playing gets a bigger chance of moving up compared to an idle team, and we're seeing some of the teams who are trying to play struggle. That's OK. We applaud the work they're doing, and we hope to see the results soon.
Marist pulled off a very big Tri-State Conference win early in the season, beating RPI 25-12.
RPI came into the season with a big roster and some experience, and certainly plenty of potential. Marist also has bolstered its numbers and looked fairly polished on the day.
