United States Air Force Academy v University of Colorado Buffaloes
On a dandy rugby day down the Kettle, regional college men's division-1A rivals Air Force and CU got after the pill at the Infinity Rugby Complex in Glendale.
First 20 minutes for the Zoomies and 10 points their profit on a penalty and converted try, while the Buffs owned the last section of the first forty, with a sticksplitter from in front of the posts and an unconverted grounding. for midway tallies of 10 and 8 in the servicemen's favor.
CU tighthead, a ubiquitous entity throughout the match
Each side showed brilliant communication and flow at times, though Air Force mishandles may have been CU's best defense on occasion. The Zoomies were hungry and adept at back-three kick-counters; Buffs scrappy and savvy with shuddering inside channel industry.
AFA scrumhalf: dodgy and skilled
With Air Force ahead 22-13 and the last ten minutes on tap, a converted try by the Schoolboys of Boulder made for a 22-20 scoreline; it was absolutely there for the Buffs at the death as they ran from their own tryline with an overlap extant. But a final fling to the wing was knocked on and with that, field magistrate Derek Summers whistled an end to proceedings and the Zoomies had the win and a record of 22-20.
