Club 7s Nationals Day One Recap & Scores


Day one of the Club 7s Nationals is in the book and by and large things played out as expected. Several teams, including eventual pool winners Utah, WAC, and Denver, all booked their spots in the quarterfinals after two rounds, as did Bulldog. However, the rest of the four spots were booked in the last round of the day. In Pool B, Old Blue lost to WAC in their first match of the day but then went on to beat both Dallas and Metropolis in convincing fashion to move on. In Pool C it came down to to a surprise win by Charlotte over Schuylkill River to give Belmont Shore second place in the pool. Schuylkill River had looked set to claim the spot after beating Belmont Shore 17-12 in the second round but then Charlotte played well to win their only match of the day.

Pool D arguably had some of the most parity. Chicago, Life West, and Santa Monica all won two matches. It came down to point differential where Life West bested Santa Monica by one point. The Lions had the best point differential. Pool A was straightforward with WAC and Bulldog taking spots after two rounds.

Tomorrow's Cup quarterfinals will see some very exciting match-ups, including WAC against Bulldog, Utah against Old Blue, and Denver against Life West.

Take the jump to read more.
In the women's tournament all of the favorites advanced. The best team to miss out came in Pool A, which was the pool of death, as the Glendale Merlins were the team squeezed out with Life West and Scion advancing. Each of the three teams had two wins and one loss but Life West and Scion had much better point differential than the Merlins to advance.

In Pool B, New York was dominant all day as were the Chicago Lions. Pool C went to the San Diego Surfers who topped the APRTC to win the pool. They played each other in their last match of the day to determine the pool. In Pool D, Atavus and NOVA ruled.

Tomorrow's quarterfinals will see several very good teams go home early. We particularly have our eye on Atavus vs. the ARPTC.
