7s Nationals Brackets Set
The brackets at the USA Rugby men's Club 7s Championships are set after this weekend's action.
Boston won the Northeast, beating Middlesex in the final. Both teams qualify. Chicago Lions defeated YoungBloodz in the Midwest final. Both teams qualify.
Schuylkill River beat a surprising Pittsburgh in the Mid-Atlantic final. Both teams qualify.
OMBAC won the Belmont Shore 7s over Belmont Shore II to take the #2 seed form SoCal. Belmont Shore I had already qualified.
And at the Denver 7s, four teams entered tied with six points in the standings, and those four made the semifinals. In the end, Woodlands Exiles came back to beat Denver in the final to secure the #1 seed. Denver takes #2, and Glendale, by virtue of beating the Dallas Harlequins in the 3rd/4th game.
So that sets up the brackets as follows:
Utah Warriors (Pacific #1)
Glendale Raptors (West #3)
SFGG (Pacific Coast #2)
Chicago Lions(Midwest #1)
Schuylkill River(Mid Atlantic #1)
OMBAC (SoCal #2)
Denver Barbarians(West #2)
Woodlands Exiles(West #1)
Pittsburgh Harlequins (Mid Atlantic #2)
Middlesex (Northeast #2)
Atlanta Old White(South #1)
New Orleans(South #2)
Hawaii Select (Hawaii #1)
Belmont Shore(SoCal #1)
