Northeast Academy, Quebec Win New York 7s


The Northeast Academy and Team Quebec were the big winners at the New York 7s last weekend coming away with the men's and women's titles respectively. The Northeast Academy, packed with players like Nate Brakeley, Mike St. Claire, Rick Kirkland, and Harry Higgins, were dominant throughout the weekend coming away with an eventual 36-5 win over rivals the Connecticut Bulldogs in the final. The Bulldogs, who featured two former Fijian internationals on their team, went up early before the Northeast Academy rattled off 36 straight points. Connor Wallace-Sims, who is only 20, was named the MVP.

To reach the final the Northeast Academy had to beat Team Quebec 31-7. That scoreline was similar to what the team would see in pool play where they got past the Upright Rugby Rogues 33-19 and Schuylkill River 29-0. Wallace-Sims would have a try and four conversions against the Rogues while Kyle Granby had two tries of his own to go along with efforts form Kirkland and Sean McGarrity.

The Bulldogs had a longer road to reach the final given then had to play three pool matches. They beat Mexico 38-5, then the Stars 36-7, and finally Team Quebec 38-0 to finish as the top see. They then beat the Rogues 24-12 in the final. In an all-Canada Plate final the Rogues beat Team Quebec 24-0 while Mexico took the Bowl over Schuylkill River 19-12.

On the women's side of things Team Quebec showed near the same dominance as the Northeast Academy. They ran through pool play beat the Northeast Academy 2 38-0, NYRC 24-5, and 1823 40-5. They then beat the Northeast Academy 1 29-0 in the semi-final before beating the Scion Sirens 20-5 in the final. The final four were Team Quebec, the Sirens, and both Northeast Academy teams. The Bowl went to Mexico who beat the Stars 17-5.
