The Summit “white team” moved into first place in the second division for Colorado Rugby with a 46-7 win over Glendale at Infinity Park on Monday night. The young Tigers blew open a 19-7 game in the second half, using speed, fitness and some slick ball handling to wear down the much bigger Junior Raptor side.

Paced by freshman speedster Maddie Hunt-Snyder’s hat trick, the Tigers (2-0) spread the ball and the scoring around, as seven different players scored tries. Robyn Kresge added three conversions for the visitors.

Sophomore captain Kellie Cochran was very pleased with her teammates’ play and singled out freshman hooker Anne Parker, lock Dani Langevin and halfback Kristin Erickson for great efforts from beginning to end.

The team hosts Regis Jesuit on Tuesday.
