EG Rugby Team Wins Championship

The Elk Grove United Youth Rugby Club won the Varsity Silver Division Championship on Sunday in The Kick Off Tournament (http://svrf.org/kot.html) at Cordova High School in Rancho Cordova. The tournament is the largest youth rugby tournament in the country. This year over 125 teams competed. Teams were represented from across Northern California and even Oregon and Calgary, Alberta. 


Elk Grove United defeated Diablo Youth Rugby Club from Walnut Creek, 18-7, in the first game. They tied Lancer Youth Rugby Club from Rancho Cordova, 5-5, but moved on because of tie-breaker criteria. In the finals EG defeated the Sacramento Eagles Youth Rugby club 14-0.
