The East 9/10 team played against the undefeated West Valley Club team. The East Rugby team is made up of kids who attend East High School and the West Valley Team is made up of kids from Hunter, Bingham, Granger and Cyprus. The West Valley Club also got out to a strong start but the Leopards hung in there. Samiuela Vakalahi got on the board first for East followed by Helaman Suesue. The score at the half was East 12 West Valley 24. West Valley would extend their lead in the second half making the final score East 12 West Valley 36. West Valley would go on to win the State Championship for the 9/10 group. It was a great season for the East Rugby 9/10 group. About half of the team had never played rugby before and the other half had some experience. The future is bright and we look forward to watching this group play in the coming years and competing at a high level.
