USA Rugby Men's D1 2013-2014 standings - week 15

Despite the continued below-seasonal temps in the region, week 15 in Men's Midwest Division 1 USA Rugby saw the first return to a full schedule since the winter break.

The Blues were on the road to play the Dragons in Davenport. With Kansas City in 2nd place and 4 consecutive wins behind them, this match had the potential to be a run-away vs. the 7th-placed Palmer team. But the Dragons would not roll over and the margin stayed close — with a final score of 15-6 for the visitors — but not close enough to net a bonus-point loss for the hosts.  

The Lions returned to regular season play in a cross-city match vs. the Griffins. The Lions dominated for long periods and came away with a well-earned bonus-point victory, 39-15. However, we learned this week that the Lions were unable to negotiate a make-up match for their 16/11/2013 fixture vs. Metropolis. The decision hands a 28-0 win to Metro.

Perhaps the most spirited match of the weekend was the Wolfhounds at Scioto Valley. With only 1 win all season, Cincinnati were playing for pride and it showed in Columbus. However, their efforts fell just short. Scioto Valley won the contest 36-31 to earn a full five points. Thw Wolfhounds did not leave empty-handed however: the high and close score netted them two bonus points.

The final match-up was a late 3PM kick-off for the Barbarians in Minneapolis. The lop-sided affair ended with a 59-3 win for the hosts. The victory clinched a spot in the national championship for Metro who now lead Kansas City by an unassailable seven points in the standings. For Milwaukee, the loss drops them to 4th place with Scioto Valley taking back 3rd place.
