UNT Match Reports - Oct 18, 2014

UNT Rugby Press Release

On Saturday, Mean Green Rugby continued its excellent season with a 43-13 cup match win in Nacogdoches vs. Stephen F. Austin State University. The Eagles selected a forward and a back as Man of the Match. Captain and flanker Sini Tešić contributed to the dominant scrums, a staple of the team for two years. At 6'4", Sini also was the main target at line outs. Wing Austin Becker scored a hat trick with blistering speed and footwork that baffles defenders.

Mean Green Rugby's second side traveled to Waco the same day and proved competitive vs. Baylor's first side. Although Baylor was victorious, the players demonstrated a lot of grit and contained the opposing backs throughout the match. Forward's Man of the Match, Corey Allison had a slew of massive hits and ran strong from the 8-man position in the second half. Back's Man of the Match, Daniel Sieberhagen guided the team from the flyhalf position and distributed the ball accurately even under immense pressure.

Rice University travels to Denton on Saturday for a cup match and second side match. The University of North Texas Rugby is 3-0 in the Southwest Conference and confidently holding 1st place.
