The Dallas Reds improved to 3-0-1 and remain in first place in the DI Club Red River Conference after handling Houston Athletic Rugby Club 42-10 Saturday.

The Dallas Harlequins improved to 2-0 with a forfeit win over Fort Worth, and the Griffins improved to 2-2 with a victory over The Woodlands, while idle New Orleans (2-0-1) and Austin Blacks (2-0) remain unbeaten.

Dallas played without regular starters Kelly Kolberg and captain Rys Bal, both out with injuries.

The Reds scored eight tries, with flanker Chad Joseph leading the charge with three. Austin Ryan, Andrew Stock, Gerad Crosswy, Zach Taylor, and Sam Palmer all scored, with scrumhalf Ryan being named player of the game for his defense.

The mobile Dallas back row of Joseph, Colin Yerian and Jeremy Neilson played well as did locks Jacobi Cary and Jonny Heron and centers Crosswy and Chase Haberstroh.  

Houston battled hard, especially with their outside backs, but were outmatched.
