The Elite 8 Bombers match against Ventura is scheduled for a noon/MST kickoff time at KINO SPORTS COMPLEX in Tuscon, AZ on May 20th.
A season after falling to Boulder Rugby in the Frontier Playoffs, the St. Louis Bombers beat the top two teams from Rocky Mountain, Denver Barbarians and Glendale Raptors D2, to advance to the Round of 8 where they will face the Ventura County Outlaws.
After a 3-4 start to its season, Ventura County has won five consecutive games before it beat the Las Vegas Irish and Red Mountain Warthogs in regional playoff matches, the latter coming in an impressive 39-10 performance by the Outlaws.

The boys have been working hard at practice the last couple of weeks, preparing physically and mentally in what will be another exciting weekend. The winner will face off against the winner of the Sacramento Blackhawks and Little Rock Stormers match on Saturday. Weather in Tucson for the weekend will be a bit warmer than it is in St. Louis, around mid 90s, but at least it will be dry.
Make sure to keep checking the website and all our Social Media outlets to score updates throughout the weekend. We’re hoping for a live video feed and will post it once it becomes available.
The Bombers would like to THANK all those who have donated to the Playoff fundraiser, you all have been very generous. There is still time to donate and any amount is greatly appreciated. *All donations are taxed deductible.
