Kutztown vs Arizona - Collegiate Rugby Championship

It’s going to be a rematch of last year’s CRC Final, as Kutztown won their semifinal over Arizona, 19-14. The opening moments of this one were very back-and-forth, with Arizona holding a slight possessoin edge. Kutztown finally broke through when Alex Faison-Donahoe received a great feed and outran Arizona’s Kyle Rogers to open the scoring. A conversion brought the Bears to a 7-0 lead with over two minutes left in the first half. Arizona had trouble executing clean passes throughout the first half, as they found themselves knocking on and dropping many passes. Kutztown wore down tired Wildcat players and grabbed one more try before the first half ended to take a 12-0 halftime lead. Arizona got on the board with under three minutes to play with a nice try from Anthony Spencer. The conversion brought the Wildcats to within a try of the lead. Kutztown quickly crushed any hope of a comeback when Robert Stortz scored off a fantastic setup from Nu’u Aaiva. Dante Weeks, who has had a phenomenal CRC, added a try as time expired for Arizona.
