Club Update: April 2014

The Tigers are SCRC West Division Champs!

With four wins to finish out matrix play, the LSU Tigers have completed their first undefeated season in 5 years to claim the #1 seed in the West Division.

The month of March was a busy one with four scheduled games for the club. The first was an away battle in Knoxville, TN against the Tennessee Volunteers. After a first half filled with penalties and mental mistakes left the teams tied 15-15, the Tigers regrouped and finished the game strong with a final of 41-18.

The following weekend the Tigers traveled again. This trip led them to Tuscaloosa to take on Alabama. The two clubs wrestled fiercely with LSU winning 29-12 in their closest match of the season thus far.

The third weekend of March was the last scheduled home match against Ole Miss and was Parents’ Weekend. Due to team issues, Ole Miss forfeit and the day was turned into an inter-squad 7’s tournament. The day was filled with family and fun times. The forfeit by Ole Miss allowed the Tigers to clinch the #1 seed in the SCRC West.

Last weekend was LSU’s final regular season game in Auburn, AL to play the #2 seed Auburn Tigers. Both teams trudged through the mud filled field. The Bayou Bengals prevailed winning the game 22-5 to complete their regular season perfection.

The next game for LSU will be in Knoxville, TN against the #2 seed Florida Gators on April 12th. Below are details about the weekend that can also be found at www.secrugby.com
