Saturday morning rugby kicked off at the Southern Dolphins field that presented a flurry of entertaining games. With the season in its final three weeks, teams are jockeying for a better place in the standings as the season winds down.

Academy 20, Southern 14

The Cougars got a clutch performance from captain Isabella Flroes and Gabby Avilla to avoid a draw, scoring a try as time expired to get the lift over the Dolphins.

The Dolphins were marching near the score line when the Cougars created a turnover and shifted the ball to the opposite side of the field. While advancing, referee Vinson Calvo signaled the game’s time was nearing expiration when Flores kicked the ball near midfield.

Avilla then sprinted past the entire Dolphins frontline and scooped up the ball while nearly stumbling as she glided past the score line for the game winning try.

Cougars’ Mylisa Gillan gave them the early lead scoring just seconds into the start of the game. The Dolphins responded quickly off a try from Erika Eben to even the score at seven heading into halftime.

Mia Santos got the Cougars back the lead 14-7 after a 50-yard sprint, but the Dolphins’ too responded after Kourtney Eber fooled everyone on the exchange and went untouched for nearly the same amount of yardage to tie the game 14 all.

Santos was tackled in the closing minutes as she tried to hit Flores, but the ball sailed out of bounds changing the possession over to the Dolphins. Southern tried to take the lead, and appeared close to doing so, until the turnover that allowed the Cougars to go 90 yards for the game winning try.

ND 17, Sanchez 12

Royals got a clutch performance from Paris B. scoring the teams last two try’s for a close win over the Sharks.
