Barbarians Best

the transition from set piece to backline by Barbos scrumhalf Carmine Hernandez 

Denver Barbarians v Park City Haggis

Slight overcast and a bit of a breeze on the StoveTop at Infinity for kickoff of the numbers one and two on the table, Barbarians and Haggis resp., and their titanic tussle, the outcome of which could see a league champion by end of day. 

Home team received the starting kick and maintained possession, sweeping back and forth across the pitch, always moving forward, down into the Haggis 22 to  a breakdown from which openside, Evan Geist, snatched the pill and sped straight to goal, brushing aside a defender en route: with conversion by flyhalf, Charles Ajarrista, it was 7-0 homeboys inn the 3rd minute.

Denver dotted a brace more swiftly and it was 17-nil before Haggis found their feet and got one of their own while Barbarians with the bonus point try prior to the midpoint for a 22-5 halftime score. Barbarians looked crisp and keen for it while Park City seemed somewhat sluggish with handling errors.

Visitors managed a pair of groundings at the start of the final forty, but it was remaining numbers for the home team and 50-15 the record as Denver secured its first D-2 Championship in memory; Barbarians were last on the table two years ago. Kudos their re-build efforts!
