DI Recap: Blues & Mystic River Win, Mid-Atlantic Washed Out


The Chicago Lions caused the biggest shake-up in the Midwest over the weekend when they beat Metropolis 28-19. The win pushes the Lions further up the standings at 3-0 while leaves Metropolis vulnerable at the top having played a league high five matches. The Lions went ahead early in the match with a try from fullback Quinn Macali just a minute into the match. Only four minutes later Metropolis took the lead when Ratu Baleirara scored a converted try. If anything, this match was a back and forth affair with the lead changing hands again in the 10th minute thanks to a try from Jordan Highberger.

Next it was Metropolis to go in from when Baleirara scored his second try of the match and Jojo Tikoisuva kicked his second conversion. However, as the match moved along the Lions were able to create distance. A penalty from Macali put the Lions up 15-14 at halftime and then a second half try from Brian Rooney put them up 20-14. Cyrus Sharif had a final try for the Lions while JP Eloff added a penalty. Joel Yogerst had a late try for Metropolis.

Kansas City gained the most from Metropolis's loss thanks to their 46-15 win over the Milwaukee Barbarians. Matt Wirken, Sean Murray, Stephen Lomas, Tyler Henry (2), Brodie Orth, and Lloyd Saunders had tries for the Blues. They now sit just one point behind Metropolis with a game in hand.

Also in the Midwest, the Chicago Griffins beat Columbus 24-12. The win was much needed for the Griffins while Columbus suffers another loss after their hot start. The Cincinnati Wolfhounds beat Palmer 20-19.

North Atlantic

Okay, okay the North Atlantic doesn't really exist anymore but for our purposes it does. Mystic River are the only strictly DI team and they are showing they belong in the ARP with a 58-13 win over Boston.


The Mid-Atlantic had all their matches washed out with rain.
