The Ram Rugby team defeated UT Dallas 40-27 on Oct. 27 at the Intramural Fields.

A turning point in the game was when fullback Jourden Stanley took the ball from the 20-meter line and ran 80 meters and scored a try.

"We took our two losses personal and had a low demeanor, but we are able to build each other up and persevere," Cesar Escajeda, junior, said.

The team said they are constantly trying to get better wherever they see room for improvement. Escajeda said he wants to improve in all aspects, including offense, defense, catching and passing. Junior Muliaga Lelauti said he feels he could improve his conditioning.

The team has high expectations and standards that some teammates find challenging. They said luckily, the bond between the teammates helps.

"Coming out here with friends who are like brothers to compete and actually win is the best feeling in the world," team president Kevin Reid-Haughton said.

Practices are every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays and Fridays are recovery days for the team.

If anyone is interested in joining the rugby team, they can come to practice and play.
