Lindenwood Claim Red Bull Uni 7s


Bouncing back from some offseason turmoil Lindenwood got their fall season start off strong with a win at the Red Bull Uni 7s at Infinity Park. With the win the team has now earned a trip to England to play with some of the other top universities from around the world. With players like Sebastian Kalm on the roster the Lions didn't lose a match eventually defeating Arizona State 26-10 in the final. It wasn't always easy, including a nervy 14-2 win over Wyoming in their final pool play match and a 17-12 overtime win over Utah in the semi-finals. Still, the Lions have been an excellent 7s team in the last few years and that showed once again.

Runners-up Arizona State also had a nice team. They put up big scores over Denver, Utah, and Colorado in pool play before beating Wyoming 36-14 in the semi-finals. They eventually fell short against Utah 24-7 in the 3rd/4th place match. Utah struggled a bit early before coming on strong.
