Furman Wins SRC Championship

Furman ended UNC-Wilmington’s three-year reign over the Southern Rugby Conference Sunday by defeating the Seahawks 23-17 to win the SRC championship.

Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the Paladins coasted to the Sunday final after racing by East Carolina University 63-3. UNC-W had to work overtime to beat Appalachian State 22-17.

Furman’s victory brought to an end UNC-W’s 24-game SRC win streak and handed the Seahawks their first ever conference 15s loss.

The Paladins, playing with a stiff wind to their backs, used tactical kick for much of the first half to keep the Seahawks pinned on their end. Leading 6-3, Furman prop Jeff Tonge bullied into the corner of the try zone near the 25-minute mark to give the Paladins a 11-3 lead that would hold up until half time.
