DI Recap: Midwest & Mid-Atlantic Results


It's time once again to take a look around the active men's DI competitions.

Mid-Atlantic

Rocky Gorge faced some of their most difficult competition over the weekend as they faced the Norfolk Blues but in the end it was still a 50 plus point performance as they won 51-24. Fresh from the Americas Pacific Challenge Ben Cima was in the action early for Rocky Gorge trading penalties with Jacob Humphrey. Josh Brown from Rocky Gorge was the first to grab a try in the match and soon James Rehak, Scott Wheeler and Raymond Akinola would add to the score to balloon the lead to 29-6. Norfolk would eventually get a more penalties and a try from Humphrey but Gorge were simply too much.

Promoted side Wilmington continue to struggle as they lot to the Baltimore-Chesapeake Brumbies 69-7. The last match in the division was closer with the Pittsburgh Harlequins beating the Schuylkill River Exiles 40-17. The Harlequins are looking rejuvenated this year after struggling for a couple of years.

Midwest

The Midwest continues to remain tight. Columbus picked up another win over the weekend beating the Chicago Griffins 27-21. Ryan Cochran got things started before Joseph Schroeder, David Fetalaiga, and David Stauder added to the tally to make it 22-0 with only 16 minutes played. Andrew Suniula would score and convert a try while teammate Vakautafefine Fonua also added a try to cut the lead to 22-14. Another try from Fetalaiga would finish out the scoring for Columbus with a whole half left to play and with Suniula scored again in the 48th minutes things looked like they could swing to Chicago but the rest of the match was a defensive stalemate with Columbus holding on for the win.

Metropolis did their best to chase Columbus down as they beat the Milwaukee Barbarians 38-12. Lemoto Filikitonga and Jojo Tikoisuva were big parts of the win. Finally, the Chicago Lions got on the right side of the win column as they beat Palmer 34-18.

Next week sees a big match-up between Columbus and Metropolis.
