CGRU Playoffs: Men's Champs Decided, Women's Semifinal Results
April 22, 2018
It's been a long road since the start of the Carolinas Geographic Rugby Union season in September of last year. All of the matches, bumps, and bruises culminated in championships for two clubs yesterday. The CGRU Men's Division 2 and Men's Division 3 championships were held yesterday. At the same time, the Women's Division 2 semifinals took place.
Men's Division 2 Championship
One year removed from winning the CGRU Division 3 title and reaching the USA Rugby Final 4, Southern Pines have repeated that feat. Except this season it was in Division 2. Southern Pines dispatched the Atlanta Renegades 46-18 yesterday to win the Division 2 title and secure the CGRU top seed at the upcoming South Championship.
Men's Division 3 Championship
Asheville secured the CGRU Division 3 title after holding off a tough Charlotte Barbarians side with a final score of 22-17.
Women's Division 2 Semifinals
In the Women's Semifinals, Charlotte took down the visiting Augusta Furies. In the other semifinal, the Atlanta Harlequins rolled to a 72-0 victory over Eno River. Charlotte and the Harlequins meet next week to decide the Women's Champion.
