Schuylkill River vs Beltway at Philadelphia 7s

Submitted by Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union

The Mid-Atlantic 7s series came to a close on Saturday as Schuylkill River faced off against the Beltway Elite at the Philadelphia 7s. Beltway outpaced the Exiles, 26-19, earning their second consecutive appearance at USA Rugby Club Nationals.

"We've played Schuylkill River eight times in qualifiers and once at Nationals in the last two years," Beltway coach Jon Grasso said in an interview with USA Rugby. "When that final whistle blew, all 14 guys on the field had absolutely nothing left and completely laid it on the line. We give our hats off to Schuylkill for playing as hard as it did and really think it's a shame that both teams don't get to go to Nationals."
