Army vs South Carolina - Collegiate Rugby Championship

Men’s Pool F, Army v. South Carolina: The Black Knights claimed the first points one hundred seconds into the contest when Brendan Cunningham hit Angelo Matz with the offload for the converted try under the post. Set up by maybe the pass of the tournament, South Carolina got on the board with a five-point from Patrick Thacker in the left corner during the sixth minute. A chip and chase nearly gave South Carolina the lead with seventeen seconds left on the clock, but the Gamecocks could not outrace the Black Knights, keeping it just a two-point contest heading into halftime.
In the ninth minute, Brendan Cunningham was narrowly brought down by South Carolina. He released the ball to get back up and score a nearly certain try. Unfortunately for the Black Knights, the ball rolled forward on Cunningham in the process, ending the immediate scoring threat. Two minutes later, Army finally got well-earned points by way of Sam Sutera, stepping through a tackle in the process. Cunningham’s conversion made it a two-score match with three minutes to play. A controversial yellow card against Colin Callahan for a fireman’s carry tackle, left South Carolina down a man and opened the try line for Luke Haug. Cunningham’s conversion from in front of the post made it three scores for Army, where it stood at the final whistle. On full time, Army 21, South Carolina 5.
