USA CLOSE OUT ARC WITH BIG WIN
Sunday, October 19, 2014 - Submitted by Jeff Hull

Coming off an impressive performance against Canada in their second match of the 2014 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC), the USA Selects were keen to end their tournament with a big win against Uruguay at Westhills Stadium in Langford, British Columbia.

From the beginning the USA Selects appeared to have the better of their South American opponents, issuing punishing tackles and attacking with confidence from all parts of the field.

American tries rained down from the likes of Ben Pinkelman and Louis Stanfield, as well as his brother Tim Stanfield, who collected a pair of his own.

Uruguay’s traditionally hard tackling looked absent at times, as the Americans applied pressure in the tackle area and through their sizable forward pack.  The one significant advantage Uruguay demonstrated was at scrum-time, where their pack won Los Teros several penalties over the course of the match.

In the end, however, the USA possessed too much in the way of firepower. Having inserted Sevens stars like Zack Test into their starting roster, the USA looked dynamic and creative in attack throughout the contest.

Their 30 – 5 victory on the tournament’s final match day secured the USA second place at the 2014 ARC, and will certainly give the Eagles a boost, as they prepare to open their November international schedule against the New Zealand All Blacks in Chicago on November 1st.

Match Scoring:

Final Score: USA 30 – Uruguay 5
USA Tries: Pinkelman, T. Stanfill (2), L. Stanfill ?
USA Conversions: Siddall, Niua ?
