St. Joe's Sevens: Help Shags Save the Day
St. Joseph's University will host the St. Joe's Sevens this Saturday on the turf at Sweeney Field. The first match will kick off at 4 pm and matches will continue until 10 pm.
This tournament is a spontaneous creation of St. Joe's head coach Shags Yarusso to help a fellow program in a bind. An event this coming Saturday at Navy was canceled. When Coach Yarusso found out that the St. Bonaventure University rugby team had non-refundable tickets to play rugby this weekend, the plan was put in motion.
St. Joe's Sevens: Looking for 2 More Teams
So far six teams are in the mix for the event including 2 from Temple, 2 from St. Bonaventure, Kutztown University and St. Joseph's. Eight teams is ideal, splitting the 8 into two pools of 4. Each team will then play 3 pool matches followed by an upper 4 playoff and a bottom 4 playoff. Each team will be guaranteed 4 matches in all with 5 needed to win.
If you are interested in attending contact Daniel "Shags" Yarusso, head coach of Hawks Rugby.
