We are on the final stretch of the spring season and only a few weeks from the start of local and regional playoffs.
To recap, both Bomber teams won their home opener as the DIII side shut out Franklin County 42-0 and the DII reclaiming a victory against the KC Islanders 29-7.
The DII side would travel to KC to take on the DI KC Blues in a friendly match. The Bombers were first on the board but despite best efforts would fall 10-38. It was a good match to attend and would help the Bombers make adjustments on exposed areas. The DIII side also had an away match against Kohlfeld in Cape Girardeau. The score was close throughout the match with the Bombers down, but the Bombers were able to take the lead with only a few minutes left winning 18-17.
Both sides were back in St. Louis with league matches at Forest Park. The DIII side faced the Royals first but would fall 7-45 to the Royals. The DII side would face the Ramblers in the second match of the day and would defeat the Ramblers 102-0.
This week the Bombers DII side will travel back to Kanas looking for another big win as they take on KCRFC.
This weekend also marks the 67th Annual St. Louis Gateway Ruggerfest. The event will be held at Creve Coeur Park with the first matches starting at 9am. The Bombers are reigning champs the last two years and the DIII side will be representing the Bombers as we look for a three-peat.
