DC Area Rugby Team Hosts Tournament
 
 
 
January 26 and 27, 2013, the DC area received a treat as the NRH Capitol Punishers quad rugby team hosted the Capitol Clash Quad Rugby Tournament. An intense two day tournament began early on Saturday morning when the veteran team from New York rolled over a newly formed team from Baltimore (Kernan Collision). The day continued with easy wins by NRH over Raleigh, New York over Magee, NRH over Pittsburgh, and Magee over Kernan. Day one action concluded with a 50-45 victory for Raleigh over Pittsburgh. 
 
Crossover games on Sunday morning put Pittsburgh and Kernan into the 5th/6th place game, Raleigh and Magee into the 3rd/4th place game, and New York and NRH into the championship game. The championship game got off to an intense start. New York took an early lead. NRH worked hard to stay within 5 goals at halftime. In the end, New York won 50-43 over the home team.
 
The final tournament standings were: 1st Place: New York Warriors
2nd Place: NRH Capitol Punishers
3rd: Magee Eagles
4th: Raleigh Sidewinders
