Jesuit and Xavier in HS Championship

Jesuit and Xavier in HS Championship

Xavier High School and Sacramento Jesuit emerged from the quarterfinal and semifinal stages of the national tournament to secure themselves a spot in the Emirates Airline USA Rugby 2011 Boy's High School National Championship set to kickoff at 2:30 MDT at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. 

 

Jesuit put in dominant performances over Penn High School (Mishawaka, Ind.) and Gonzaga (Washington D.C.) to earn a spot in the championship games. 

 

Xavier pulled out a hair raising win over Charlotte Catholic in the semifinal after forcing the game to be decided on penalty kicks following a try scored with zeros left in regulation time. Xavier defeated St. Thomas Aquinas (Kansas City, Mo.) in the quarterfinals.

 

The championship game will be webcast live on USA Rugby's UStream channel, www.ustream.tv/usarugby.
