Despite inclement weather plaguing the East, this weekend marks the first full weekend of 15s rugby. Games were played on all levels on Saturday and Sunday with many amazing results. We will be covering as much as we can to bring you the scores available.
D1A is mostly still in preseason mode with a few clubs taking their first shots at conference play. In the Rugby East, NDC blanked Buffalo, 65-0, and Colgate and Fordham picked up wins in the Liberty. In non-conference affairs, Arkansas State, Navy, Indiana, Bowling Green, Army, Syracuse, and Clemson won on Saturday.
Only four games were played in the D1AA as Mary Washington, Mount St. Mary’s, and Virginia Tech impressed with solid wins in the Chesapeake. Kentucky brought the thunder against Louisville, 41-3, in a non-conference match.
Thirty-one games were played in DII with seven conferences in action. Although few games were canceled due to weather and a couple more ended with forfeits, rugby is strong in DII with NC State, Queens College, Southern Illinois, Central Michigan, and Marquette scoring over 40 points.
Play in DI Club kicked off on Saturday as the ARP/Atlantic North, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest began their fall seasons. In the ARP, Life won on the road at Mystic River and Old Blue took the first bout against NYAC with a last-second penalty to win 36-34. Norfolk and Rocky Gorge put up 50+ points in each of their opening games in the Mid-Atlantic and NOVA and Pittsburgh began their seasons on a positive note. Lastly, in their first DI Midwest tests, Detroit and St. Louis won on the road and conference beasts, Metropolis and Chicago, dominated.
