Barbarians, Monarch triumph

Monarch lineout

Monarch topped Denver East High Angels, 39-22, at the Angels homegrounds of Heaven yesterday, running out to a 22-13 halftime lead before closing the deal in the second stanza. It was there briefly for East early in the last half when the elusive Angels flyhalf crossed the line for the converted goal that drew the home team within a deuce at 20-22, but all final points for the travelers for the record.

Haggis handoff at lineout
Denver Barbarians ran their win streak to eleven this season with comprehensive, 71-7, defeat of Park City Haggis in the championship match of the Rocky Mountain Men's D-2 league. A vagrant, blowy wind out of all quarters stymied free-flowing play and promoted short communications and lofty, hanging kicks.

A handful of first forty trys, three converted to goal by Barbarians standoff Charles Ajarrista, saw homeboys with a 31-0 cushion at the midpoint on a swirling windy StoveTop. Haggis managed a goal in the last half, but a point-per-minute pace by the host in the final forty made for the record, the league championship and advancement to the next playoff round on the upcomer, Saturday May 5 up 'Top. Barbos will square off against current Missouri RFU titlists and last year's USARFU D-3 National Champions, St. Louis Royals, for the right to represent at the Western Championships, May 19/20 in Fort Worth.

Royals can rack up the points as they tallied 71 and 82 against Kansas City Blues and Omaha GOATS respectively this season in their league. Join the fray up 'Top next weekend on the RugbyDay at 3pm to discover who's to be victor and move on to Fort Worth.
