Great display of rugby was shown this past weekend as UNF Rugby left Mobile, Alabama with some hardware! UNF came into the tournament as the top-seeded team in the South, which showed on the field. Saturday, the Deadbirds had the first game of the day against Spring Hill College. They were ready to show the South what they had been working on all year. The game started
strong with UNF scoring multiple tries before the half. The Deadbirds held on and finished the game strong. Final score UNF(24) – Spring Hill(0).
With a win over Armstrong Atlantic, Eckerd was once again advancing to the final game. UNF had already played Eckerd twice in the season, defeating them both times. This did not stop the Deadbirds from thinking twice about their opponent. The team pulled together and finished the game victorious. Final score UNF(17) – Eckerd(0).
UNF now advances to the NSCRO Championships held on March 24th-25th in Norfolk, Virginia. The Deadbirds have earned the right to represent the South in their Division and have a few more games until a National Championship.
