The USA will play the West in the title match on Saturday; the Pacific Coast will play the Midwest for 3rd; and the South will take on the Mid-Atlantic tomorrow for 5th.
U20 flyhalf Cassidy Meyers (Kent, Wash.) led the field with 13 points on four conversions and a try – all scored during the first half. Replacement flyhalf Meya Bizer (flyhalf) accounted for 10 points (try, conversion, penalty), and inside center Natalie Kosko (Indian River) tied the standoff for points scored on a brace of tries. Also notching five-pointers were prop Jess Davis (American International College), hooker Johni Durbin (Fallbrook), wing Joya Clark (Norwich) and fullback Rose Bernheim (Norwich).
The South managed three scores, one in the first half from wing Rhiannon Clark (Elon), and one apiece from scrumhalf Caitlin Williams (UNC) and flyhalf Jess Peterson (East Carolina), who also accounted for the conversion, in the second half.
Stay tuned for coach feedback.
