TRYBE Rugby and Herriman will meet in the Utah State championship Saturday after winning their respective semifinals Friday night. The games were 55 minutes long.

TRYBE won the first semifinal, downing Snow Canyon 15-5, and Herriman beat United 22-17 in the second game.

Herriman beat TRYBE 33-25 earlier this season, in a game TRYBE coach Jeramy Evans said his team led 25-15 with just three minutes to go.

Asked how Herriman amassed 18 points in three minutes to beat TRYBE, he responded, “There’s some great rugby going on in Utah. It’s fun. It’s intense. And there’s great players. There’s wonderful individual players. It’s good rugby.”

Injury has severely trimmed TRYBE’s roster over the course of a long season., and it could bite TRYBE in Saturday’s final.

“We don’t have very many subs. We’ve got a lot of injuries, got a lot of guys hurt,” said Evans. “We’re down to 17 for tomorrow’s match, so it should be exciting, and obviously there’s no need for motivation here.”
