Newsletter: Regular Seasons Wrapping Up

By Matt Schmidt, 04/03/17, 10:45AM MST


Lions Wrap Up Season

The men finished their season with a win, beating Camelback 32-17. The men's squad vastly improved this year, beating Yuma and Camelback. They came within  about three plays of winning three additional matches (losing those games by an average of only 5 points), and the scores of both their losses to the Magpies does not reflect how close those matches were for the majority of the game. The Lions improved their average point differential from roughly 30 points a game to only 5.   

The men will be participating in 7s this summer. Details soon.
