2016 Ariel Re Bermuda Sevens
#Bermuda7s ... The Ariel Re Bermuda 7s in Hamilton, Bermuda was a smashing success. Friday night saw some great contests as Greenwich High School edged West Chester, Bermuda Rugby and Dartmouth went 3-0 (though Big Green was sorely tested by Stony Brook) and Kutztown racked up 100 points in three victories before the lights dimmed at the National Sports Centre.
Things got even hotter during championship play on Saturday. Dartmouth came away with the Cup, prevailing over a scrappy Stony Brook squad 22-7 after edging Kutztown 12-10 in the semis, while Big Green's second side captured the Shield with a 17-10 victory over Norwich. The talented and tough Bermuda Collegians took third after defeating mighty Kutztown 15-10. Boston RFC, featuring great play by #7, took the plate with a deserved win over Notre Dame College. In high school action, Greenwich took the championship in an overtime thriller over West Chester, breaking a 7-7 tie in a defensive battle to seize the sudden-death victory.
