Tough Loss - But one game left

EAST LOST IN SEMI FINALS
On Sat. May 5 East Rugby lost to Cherry Creek 20-17 in a thrilling overtime match at Dick's Stadium.
There was a large crowd of East players, parents students and fans. Thanks to the ticket sales efforts of coach Matt McConville and Ally Baily, East Rugby made $315 off the gate.

Also thanks to the Denver Barbarians for including us as a curtain raiser for their big victory over San Francisco Golden Gate.

Mike was vice captain of the U.S. Eagles national team and coached at East for 4 yeas. He still helps us and is the Head Coach at Regis University.
He is a great coach too.

I believe the camp is $150 for 5 camp dates and the national tournament in Aurora. If you are really serious about attending but cannot because of cost, please contact me and we'll look for a way to help you out.

I look forward to seeing you all at the Match in Infinity Stadium, at the Angel Awards and the E.O.S. party.
