Stars, Capital Selects Name Rosters For Tilt

It's an all-star club vs. regional select side as the Stars XV take on the Capital Selects. Both teams have named their rosters for the match and each has a number of players worth paying attention to. On the Capital Selects men's team you have Ben and Matias Cima, who are now turning out for Rocky Gorge. Also on the team is Chris Saint. He's spent some time playing in New Zealand and has been in Eagles camp. The Stars similar have a strong line-up that would have even been bolster more with the presence of Brodie Orth but he was called into Eagles camp.

One the women's side of things the Stars are bringing in Wisconsin star Justine Wypych as well as several players from the DC area. The Capital Selects have a wide variety of players from Capital Region clubs but have also brought in some players from the college game in the area, including the U.S. Naval Academy.

The match is set for Sunday in Leesburg, Virginia.

Take the jump to see the rosters.

  1. Curtis, thank you for posting this.I am going to this event on Sunday and now know who's playing. It helps.

  2. The Capital Selects Women's Roster is not quite correct. What email should I send the accurate roster to?

  3. Correction to the Women's Listing: Kendall Vaughan plays for Norfolk Storm (and her name is spelled incorrectly).
