A fantastic day of rugby in Pittsburgh saw two men's and two women's teams advance to the Emirates Airline USA Rugby 2011 DII College Championships tomorrow.
The women of Notre Dame beat Stonehill College in the semifinals to advance to the championship game where they will face Radcliffe College. Radcliffe College powered their way to the final by defeating a strong University of Western Washington side.
On the men's side, Sierra College was defeated by the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. UWW will face Middlebury College in the final. Middlebury squeaked by Salisbury today in an absolute cracker of a game with a final score of 29-26. Salisbury started very strong and very fired up, but Middlebury played an intelligent and opportunistic brand of rugby to prevail in the end.
The women's championship game kicks off tomorrow at noon ET and the men will get underway at 2 p.m. Both games will be webcast on USA Rugby's UStream channel, www.ustream.tv/usarugby.
