West Ottawa Rugby prepares for playoff run

The D1 panther team finished the season a perfect 6-0 in league play and a record of 10-1 when you include two preseason victories in Indiana and two more at the Midwest Championships.  The only lose coming to the Nationally ranked (11th) Brwonsburg team from Indiana 7-6.  West Ottawa will have the familiar target on its back with the #1 overall seed going into this Saturdays Quarter & Semi Finals games.  Grandville will be lurking in the Semi finals with a hunger for revenge after the beat down they took  this last week 43-5.    The Panthers opening opponent comes from Brighton who is the #4 seed out of the east. 

The Division 2 team finished and even 3-3 in league play and face an uphill battle this weekend as they will face the 6-0 Dearborn silverbacks in the quarter finals of D2.  We hope to see the strength of their schedule on the west side pay off with an upset and a big move into the Semi finals.

The first two rounds of the playoffs will be heald at Kenowa Hills High School this Saturday May 19th with the panthers kicking off at 11am (D2) and Noon (D1).

State finals will be hosted May 26th at the West Ottawa Soccer stadium with kick offs for Div 3 at Noon, Div 2 at 1:30pm and Div 1 at 3pm.
