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.
