With the fall season entering its final weeks, clubs are wrapping up their season while others are in full postseason mode. The US National team took center stage in Chicago but plenty of college and club rugby was played across the country.

The D1AA National Quarterfinals start in two weeks so the conference championships began this weekend. In the SCRC, Kentucky took home its second title in a row with a 36-31 win over Alabama and St. Joseph’s notched another Mid-Atlantic championship by beating a tough West Chester outfit, 47-38.

In the Ivy semifinals, Dartmouth and Brown advanced to the final next Saturday and Western Michigan and Bowling Green blew out their opponents and will meet next weekend for the MARC trophy. Mary Washington solidified its stranglehold of first in the Chesapeake while Salisbury’s 48-22 win over James Madison put it into D1AA playoff contention.

Big matchups and even bigger wins highlighted D1A. The usual suspects of Arkansas State, Army, Navy, BYU, Penn State, and Kutztown won, while others made their fall debuts. Lindenwood started its 2018-2019 campaign with a 22-10 over Lindenwood-Belleville, but Cal Poly fell to Chico State, 27-21, in its opener.

Saint Bonaventure continued its fall romp with an emphatic 32-14 victory over NDC and out in the Red River, Texas A&M crushed Baylor, 55-5. In the Liberty, Iona, AIC, Fordham, UMass, and Northeastern won by a combined score of 237-29 and the outlier was Fairfield’s 33-31 upset of Boston College.

Finally, DI Club was mostly silent with the Rugby Weekend. As a Midwest prelim to the big game in Chicago, the Griffins won their third straight beating Detroit, 46-24. Lastly in the Mid-Atlantic, the Potomac Exiles picked up its second win of the season with a 33-7 win over the Washington Irish.
