Chicago Lions Win Men's Aces


The Chicago Lions were the top team in the Men's Aces at the LVI claiming the championship with a 17-7 win over the Army. The Lions carried over their strong form that they exhibited last summer and surely sent their intentions for another strong summer this year. Before beating the Army in the final the Lions ran past Atlanta Old White 33-10.

The other semi-final had the Army over Humless 17-7. While the Aces is always a fairly open division the win was a bit of a surprise given how Humless have dominated the division in recent years. In the quarterfinals the Lions beat Upright 24-19, the Army beat the Selects 19-7, Humless beat BC Rugby 24-12, and Atlanta Old White beat Denver 29-12.

In the other hardware areas Humless beat Atlanta Old White 38-5 for third place. New Orleans beat the PNRFU Loggers 24-19 for the Plate. The West Valley Lions won the Bowl.
