With the weather wreaking havoc on the east coast, most matches were able to be played this weekend. It was a full schedule in college as the Rugby East, Big Ten, Liberty, Rocky Mountain, Chesapeake, SCRC, and MARC were in action. In addition to the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and ARP for the men’s side of DI Club, the first weekend of women’s DI was played as well as four games in the WPL. Lastly, the MLR’s Glendale Raptors trekked to Canada for a date with the Ontario Arrows on Sunday.
D1A was busy this weekend with 21 games on the docket in four conferences. In the Rugby East, Army’s road trip to western New York proved fruitful as the Black Knights swept Buffalo and Saint Bonaventure by a combined score of 114-13. In an early-season bout between conference heavyweights, Penn State scored five tries to beat NDC, 29-14. Kutztown’s match versus Virginia Tech was canceled.
The Liberty Conference was on full tilt with eight tests. AIC made its debut with a 71-0 drubbing of Rutgers and UConn and Northeastern joined the Yellowjackets with shutouts. Albany, Syracuse, and UMass each scored over 40 points in their wins and Binghamton and Fordham won their games to remain undefeated. Finally, Iona gave Navy a challenge, but the Midshipmen outlasted the Gaels, 25-7.
In the Big Ten, Ohio State and Minnesota fought off stiff competition from Purdue and Michigan for their first conference victories. Indiana doesn’t start its Big Ten schedule until two weeks but got some extra prep work with a 35-12 win against Western Michigan.
Even though the first Mid-South match isn’t until a month from now, two squads continued to perfect their gameplans. Arkansas State blanked Mississippi State, 63-0, and Davenport took out Notre Dame, 48-7. In the lone Rocky Mountain match, Colorado won on the road against New Mexico, 49-26.
Three D1AA conferences flexed their muscles with interesting results. Towson and Maryland won in the Chesapeake; IUP, St. Joe’s, and Temple were victories in the MARC, and Tennessee shut out MTSU in the SCRC. Kentucky and Dartmouth each picked up wins in non-conference affairs.
On the DI Club side, Old Blue and Life improved to 2-0 with big wins over Mystic River and NYAC, respectively, in the ARP. Rocky Gorge also got to 2-0 with a 38-14 win over Pittsburgh in the Mid-Atlantic and Schuylkill picked up its first win by beating Baltimore-Chesapeake. Lastly, each of the four victors in the Midwest put up 40+ points as the Chicago Lions, Metropolis, Palmer, and Detroit all moved to 2-0 in the conference.
In the first match of the newly minted women's DI Club Eastern Conference, Philadelphia won the inaugural match against Albany, 31-5.
The fifth round of the WPL saw the Glendale Merlins blank Chicago North Shore, 45-0, Beantown clip New York, 33-30, San Diego edge ORSU, 29-26, and the Atlanta Harlequins crack the DC Furies, 51-12. The results force a three-way 3-1 tie in the Blue conference between Berkeley, Glendale, and San Diego while Beantown leads the Red conference with a 3-0-1 mark.
Finally, in a preview of a potential MLR regular season matchup, the Ontario Arrows doubled up the Glendale Raptors, 40-18, at York Lions Stadium in Toronto, Ontario. It was a tight 21-18 first half with the Arrows up at the intermission, but the Ontario defense clamped down in the second frame for a shutout. Andrew Quattrin, Kolby Francis, Lucas Hammond, Andrew Coe, and Kainoa Lloyd scored in the win for the Arrows.
