Temple vs Air Force - Collegiate Rugby Championship

Following a tough loss to Kutztown, Air Force beat the Temple Owls 24-12. Air Force brought the heat early, with Heath Reichenbach scoring just over a minute into the game. A conversion on top gave Air Force the 7-0 lead. Reichenbach would do it again, in the same spot underneath the goal posts, just minutes later. They would add yet another conversion to go up 14-0. The Owls finally got on the board with a try from Peter Mulville as the half ended to make the halftime score 14-5. Early in the second half, Mike Wellstein willed himself over the try line to get Temple back within striking distance. Ryan Grow’s conversion brought them to within two points. Play was very back-and-forth from there, with big hits and fast passing. Then, with under 100 seconds to play, Zachary White barreled over a Temple defenseman to give Air Force some breathing room. Benjamin Burmester added one more for Air Force at the final horn.
