Serevi RugbyTown 7s Championship

Howard Kent’s Denver 7s regional select rugby side went to the bank on Sunday, once again making a $10,000 withdrawal from the Serevi RugbyTown tournament account. For 10 Large was first (and only) prize awarded after the Kent-organized 7-a-side, coached by the instructional excellence of Steve La Porta and Jason Kelly, ran out to a two-try advantage over in-town rivals, Glendale Raptors, and then held out the Raptors comeback bid to claim back-to-back championships in the preeminent, fast-paced, three-day competition at Infinity Rugby Complex.

A brace of early trys by US Rugby 7s Olympian Ben Pinkelman bookended by a pair of later stage groundings by Kansas City Blues accelerant backrow Gannon Moore, and six points on try-conversions by Denver’s inimitable pivot, Maximo de Achaval, made numbers sufficient to provide for victory at the last blast from referee Leah Berard’s tweeter with the record of 31-24 for Denver.

Denver upended Ramblin Jesters, an elite squad from the United Kingdom, 19-12 in their semifinal contest to gain the field for the Grand Final, while Glendale topped Tiger Rugby, an Olympic Development Academy, by a score of 17-5 to punch its championship ticket.
