Hercus leads Belmont Shore charge

Belmont Shore remains unbeaten in the Red Conference with a solid 48-0 victory over previously unbeaten Potomac Athletic Club. American fly half Mike Hercus led the way for Belmont kicking four conversions, while flanker Faimafili Elisara, ran in two tries.

The Chicago Lions and the Chicago Griffins found themselves top of their respective USA Rugby Super League conferences after both sides recorded impressive wins in the latest round of fixtures, while Belmont Shore remain the league’s only undefeated team.

Meanwhile Boston Rugby and Philadelphia-Whitemarsh recorded their first victories of the 2007 season, giving both sides an outside chance of reaching the playoffs in the White Conference.

Two Red Conference teams, Santa Monica and San Francisco Golden Gate, helped their playoff chances with wins while the Denver Barbarians now face a struggle to make the play-offs after slipping to defeat away to Dallas.

Denver’s misfortune was the Dallas Harlequins gain. Dallas scored two tries through wing Mike Ashmead and eight points from the kicking of Vaughn Crowe.

The Griffins claimed a narrow victory, 15-10, over Boston Irish Wolfhounds thanks to a brace of tries from Ryan Westaway and one from captain Brendan Brown.

The Lions edged out Old Blue of New York on a cold night along the Hudson River.
