GRR: Royal Irish
The Midwest Boys HS Championships kicks off this weekend and it's a new-look tournament.
Previous years have seen the tournament split into HS Club and Single-School brackets. However, that has not been the best option, especially as Royal Irish has won fairly easily on the club side.
St. Ignatius of Cleveland defeated top-ranked HS club team Royal Irish 27-13 Saturday in a classic crossover match.
Ignatius, which defeated Gonzaga earlier this year - a team Royal Irish also beat - has now defeated the #2 single-school team (Gonzaga at the time), and the #1 HS cub.
The Lindenwood HS tournament returns to St. Charles, Mo. with some of the top high school teams in the middle of the USA, and will be live-streamed by www.FloRugby.com, as well.
Royal Irish capped off a torrid few weeks with a 19-15 defeat of Penn to win the Indiana state championship.
