The new schedule which has been agreed by both clubs, the Texas Rugby Union Collegiate Director and Texas Referee Society, UT Dallas will play our first playoff match:
Saturday, Feb. 18th with kick off shortly after 7:00pm. I apologize for any inconvience this may cause you, but it's something I've was trying to avoid. There will be only the one match that Saturday evening.
If you came to our first match of the season (last fall), at the Stonebriar Community Church, you'll remember this club. They had a couple of really fast wings, that exploited our wings, before we settled down and took care of business. The score at the end of the first half of that meeting was 10 - 10, then we came back with 24 unanswered points to win that match 34 - 10.
Lamar has finished the season with a 1 win and 5 loss season, but I fully believe that they are an improved club since our first meeting. We plan on being fully prepared for them and will take the field with our starting 15, if things go our way, then either at the half or shortly there after, I'll make substitutions so that more of our guys can have some playing experience, going into our championship match.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone out, supporting us in our quest for a Texas Collegiate Division III Championship. Imediately after our win against Lamar, I'll begin to fill everyone in on when the championships will be played.
I've already updated the Schedule and Standings on the web site as well as the directions. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me.
