Final score: HURT 45, Houston Athletic Rugby Club – HARC 18
Playoffs are in Austin May 5th & 6th. Details to follow. HURT’s second side, the Henchmen, will battle Galveston RFC on April 14th to keep their playoff hopes alive.
(D2) HURT: After a heart-breaking loss vs. the San Marcos Greys RFC in late February, HURT needed to pull-together some much needed wins to stay in contention for the South Division. It was a tough task considering their opponents: San Antonio Rugby F.C. and The Woodlands Rugby Club. HURT rose to the occasion and pulled out a gutsy win versus a physical San Antonio team with a final score of 49-36. A couple weeks later, HURT was also able to defeat a formidable Woodlands club 54-26 to improve their record to 5-2-1. With the current standings, HURT will clinch the South Division crown with one more win; however, they will have to go through a very tough Houston Athletic Rugby Club – HARC and West Houston Rugby Club to do so.
(D3) Henchmen: The Henchmen faced off vs the Arrows RFC in their only match since early February. Thankfully, for some late game heroics by the back-line, the Henchmen were able to pull out a win and keep their playoff hopes alive. Three matches remain for the Henchmen and they will need all three W’s to clinch a playoff spot for May.
There are 5 matches remaining between the HURT and the Henchmen; all with playoff implications! Should be one hell of a ride to the finish!
