UNR Wolfpack Wins the Pacific Western 7’s Rugby Championship

Reno, NV November 15th, 2014: University of Nevada, Reno was the host of the Pacific Western 7’s Rugby Championship Tournament. The winner of the tournament will automatically qualify in the USA Rugby 7’s National Title Competition.

On a clear day with the Sierra Mountain Range as the background, 8 teams from the Pacific Western Rugby Conference battled it out to win a spot for the USA Rugby 7’s National Tournament. Sacramento State who was in pool A had a fairly easy time winning the pool but it was pool B that had all the interesting scenarios. With one last match in pool play, UNR Wolfpack had to play University of Santa Cruz. Stanford University and UC Davis were tied in the rankings in pool play and was waiting for the outcome of the last pool match. In order for the Wolfpack to take the pool, they would have to beat UC Santa Cruz and get the bonus point by scoring 4 tries. They did just that with a score of 46 to 7 to be the top of pool B.

UC Davis beat Sonoma State 42 to 7 to win the Bowl while San Jose State beat Stanford to win the Plate.

In the Cup final, it was Sacramento State against the host UNR. In the first half, teams were trading tries with the score at half 10 to 10. The second half began with Sacramento State scoring a quick try and converting. Than it began, the Josh Hershey show for the Wolfpack, he scored an amazing try by breaking two tackles and putting it under the post. With the conversion, the score was tied again with three minutes. Sacramento State scored one more time to make the score 22 to 17. With no more time left, Josh Hershey stepped up once again to score a try under the post once again. This left the match tied with only the conversion left and that pressure was put on Garren Allbright. With the conversion right in front of the posts it should be an easy conversion but Garren kicks the ball that hits the right post and then the cross bar but manages for the ball to fall over the cross bar for the winning conversion. UNR Wolfpack wins the Pacific Western 7’s Rugby Championship with the final score 24 to 22.
