Ram Rugby continued their undefeated streak when they beat St. Edward’s University 76-7 Oct. 29.

The Rams started off strong when Tashir Newsome, senior lock, scored the first try of the game and Troy Knudsen, senior centre, made the conversion kick.

This victory was a little sweeter for the Rams because SEU is one of their biggest rivals. Last year, the Rams beat SEU for the first time since 1998 to win the state championship.

During the game, Emmett Spooner, junior winger, split his head open after getting tackled, but that did not stop him. Spooner got up and continued to play with a bandage on his head. He scored three tries post-injury. After the game, Spooner received 13 staples.

Saturday, Nov. 5, the Rams will take on Captain Zanny Lyons and the Goodfellow Air Force Base rugby team, the Bad Fellows. The game will be held at the ASU Intramural fields at 2 p.m. 

The Rams were originally going to play the University of Texas, but the Longhorns backed out a few days prior, claiming to have to watch a football game.

If UT had lost, they would have gone down a division. This is how the Rams came to play the Bad Fellows this weekend.
