Sevens at Kutztown (Presented by URugby) Summary

The purpose of us participating in this tournament was to branch out and play teams we do not normally play while continuing to build our resume for our at-large bid to the USA 7s National Championship. With Lehigh Univ., Kutztown Univ. II, and St. Josephs Univ. in our pool, we were confident in our chances of making the CUp QFs, but it was dependent on us sticking to our game plan and executing our style of rugby.  We were also provided an opportunity to enter a development side into the tournament with hopes of getting more players some minutes.  This would prove to be beneficial as the day went on! 10:20am v Lehigh University:  Going up against a Patriot League foe had the guys a little more motivated than normal.  In the first half alone, Chris Wren ’17 (twice), Clay McKee ’18, Zach Herzog ’16, Eli Brick ’17 all scored tries with Charlie Murphy ’16 converting 4 of the 5.  In the second half, our new recruit Darcy Murphy ’16 (twice), Clarence Clanton ’16 (twice), and Mike Rasmussen ’19 all crossed the white wash to end a dominating performance for Colgate.  Final Score:  Lehigh 0  Colgate 66. 12:20pm v Kutztown […]

Colgate Sevens Summary

This past weekend, Colgate played host for the 2nd leg of the Empire Rugby Conference Series.  With all 7 ERC teams involved along with Kutztown University A/B, Columbia University, and Drexel University (not to forget our second side was involved as well), Andy Kerr was turned into a rugby stadium for the afternoon.  Your Colgate ruggers were coming off a runner-up finish to AIC after dominating the ERC competition in the 1st leg.  With our alumni/parents in town to enjoy the day, our hope was to make them proud. We note that two Colgate alumni, Matt Ford ’13 and Rico Rosa ’13 were referees for the weekend’s matches. ​9:50am [v Binghamton University] = Having played an almost flawless match against Binghamton in the previous tournament, we understood they were going to come out heated.  With normal first match jitters, Colgate let a couple scoring opportunities slip their fingers.  Eli Brick ’17 was able to take advantage of another opportunity mid way through the first half and settle some nerves.  Not long after Fritz Richter ’16 made a 80 meter run to close out the first half.  The second half started with Charlie Murphy ’16 getting into the try zone after some […]

Stony Brook Sevens – Full Recap

This past weekend, your Colgate Ruggers traveled to Stony Brook University to take part in the first leg of the Empire Rugby Conference 7s Series.  Our goal coming into the tournament was to make a statement in our first conference tournament of the season while building on the momentum we gained after the Las Vegas Tournament!  With the top 3 teams from last year’s series in a pool together, we knew we were going to be tested early. 10:20am [v Fordham University] – After watching Fordham upset Stony Brook earlier in the day, we knew Fordham was going to be playing with a chip on their shoulder.  That didn’t stop Clay McKee ’18 from getting us on the board early with a great run through the defense.  This was followed up with two tries from Chris Wren ’17 that were both converted by Charlie Murphy ’16.  With a good lead, we began subbing players on and did not skip a beat.  Fritz Richter was able to finish off the game with a try of his own giving Colgate the convincing win.  Final Score:  Fordham University 0  Colgate 24.   11:20am [v Stony Brook University] – With a quick turnaround after our win, […]
