Rugby head coach recaps most recent game

Editor’s note: Rugby head coach Brian Corrigan files a report after each game; here is the most recent one.

 

The FootyBills, St. Louis U. High’s Rugby team, battled for the Missouri State Championship vs. the KC Jr. Blues at Gans Creek Park in Columbia, Missouri this weekend. SLUH narrowly lost with a final score of 14 to 15 in a dynamic game that had fans on the edge of their seats.

The first half drew to a close with SLUH leading at halftime by a score of seven to five, setting the stage for an intense second half.

The Jr. Blues took the lead on a long line break from their dynamic 13 early in the second half. But SLUH bounced right back as Nathan Gunn propelled the FootyBills through the Jr. Blues' defense, scoring a try that put SLUH ahead 14 to 10. Unfortunately though, the Blues pushed over a try in the corner with five minutes left to take a 15 to 14 lead. SLUH had a late chance for a penalty goal that wasn't meant to be.

"We came up just a hair short against a really quality team. We'll get to work and prepare to compete for a National Championship in a few weeks," SLUH Coach quoted.

The FootyBills will regroup and shift focus to the National Championship, which is scheduled for May 23 at Eckhardt, Indiana.
