Empire GU Rugby / NERFU Women’s Rugby Crossover Matches

Doug Coil
On Saturday, April 29, the Empire GU Rugby and New England Rugby Football Union had their Women’s Rugby D1 and D2 Semi-Final Crossover matches.
In the D1 Semi-Finals, #1 Empire GU Rugby seed the Monmouth Renegades beat the NERFU #2 seed Boston 33-24. In the other Semi-Final, NERFU #1 seed Beantown won 53-5 over the #2 Empire GU seed Village Lions. Monmouth and Beantown will meet on May 6 at 4pm for the Atlantic North Championship at Dick Green Field in Albany, N.Y. The winner will advance to the USA Club National quarterfinals May 20-21 in Pittsburgh, PA.
If last year’s repechage is an indication, the #2 Atlantic North seed will face the #2 Mid-Atlantic seed, as the South does not have any D1 teams.

In the D2 Semi-Finals, #1 Empire GU Rugby seed Morris beat the NERFU #2 seed Worcester 52-22. In the other Semi-Final, NERFU #1 seed Providence won 61-7 over the #2 Empire GU seed Brooklyn. Morris and Providence will meet on May 6 at Noon for the Atlantic North Championship at Dick Green Field in Albany, N.Y. The winner will advance to the USA Club National quarterfinals May 20-21 in Pittsburgh, PA.

The Empire GU Rugby Women played a hybrid schedule with the top two teams advancing to the D1 playoffs and the third and fourth teams, moving to the D2 playoffs.
