D1A Rugby: All Settled in the East

KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Army and Kutztown are in the dance. KU won a thriller at home against Penn State on Saturday to propel the Golden Bears into the playoffs and Army finished the regular season undefeated to claim the #1 seed out of the East.

Watch a replay of the Penn State @ Kutztown game here.

Kutztown bested Penn State 31-21 in the last week of the East Conference regular season, flinging KU into the D1A postseason for the first time.

The Golden Bears jumped on Penn State early and had a sizable 24-7 lead at one point, but PSU clicked on and scored 14 unanswered points to get within three of the home team. But a late try from Kutztown’s Bruce Dolen put the final coffin nail in for Penn State who were down by ten points with only a few minutes to go. A late attacking flurry from PSU was halted by Kutztown’s rugged defense as Dolen bundled Penn State into touch to end the game.

Army meanwhile, took care of Delaware 55-17 to go undefeated in the conference and cement the #1 playoff seed. Kutztown claims the #2 seed out of the East.
