I have been so busy, it has been hard to find the time to publish. However, the news has to be put out there. This past weekend, DSHA again dominated the competition to take home another consecutive Midwest Championship. The brackets and scores are available online at the Midwest Youth Rugby.
The Brookfield Bruisers also qualified for Nationals for the first time in Club history in its first trip to the Championship bracket. Brookfield upset Lakewood OH, last years Midwest and National number 2 seed, in a close fought 10-7 quarter final match.
In the festival division, Vernon and KM played for #1 and #2 , with Vernon prevailing.
DSHA-B side an Brookfield-B side took home 2nd and 4th respectively in the Div. II Festival Bracket.
So, with 24 teams competing, Wisconsin B-sides had a 2-4 record. For Wisconsin A-side teams (KM, Vernon, DSHA and Brookfield) and those losses were to other Wisconsin teams! Go Wisconsin!!
Finally -- I ask for some help for Brookfield. Brookfield is trying to raise money to complete the Cinderella Story and meet DSHA again in the final round at Nationals (hopefully with a different result -- we are coming to compete after all!). The Brookfield parents and players will be selling hot dogs and brats at the Sam's Club in Brookfield (on Springdale Rd.) on Sunday, May 16, 2010 throughout the day. Please stop by and have some food! And wear your club's Rugby gear and show just how supportive and close knit our Wisconsin rugby community can be!
