HURT closes the regular season with a 36-16 win vs. Alamo City. The first-half was dominated by HURT who took an early lead of 26-0.  Alamo City stopped the bleeding in the second-half  as they outscored HURT in the last 40 minutes. However,  it was not enough to overcome their deficit as HURT continues its dominance in the South.  HURT remains undefeated vs. all South Division opponents since their inaugural season in 2012 (12-0). The win improves HURT’s record to 9-1 as they enter the playoffs as the #1 seed. Special thanks to Alamo City for a hard-hitting match; it is always a pleasure to share the field of battle with their great club.

Revenge is sweet as HURT clinches the South Division title of the Red River Rugby Conference and eliminates Shreveport from playoff contention. A year earlier, it was Shreveport who knocked out HURT’s chances from entering the post-season. To give credit to the opposition, it was a hard fought match in soaking weather conditions. The win gives HURT back-to-back championships in the South and is guaranteed a playoff berth in May. HURT continues to dominate at home with a perfect record of 10-0 since its inauguration. With the final home game in the books for the 2013-2014 season, HURT travels to Bay Area and Alamo City and looks to further solidify its stranglehold in the South and cushion its lead for the #1 seed in the playoffs.

Special thanks to the Railyard Houston Neighborhood Bar for hosting the post-match festivities and to HURT winger Jason Blocker for providing and cooking deliciously grilled burgers.
