Sevens - Collegiate Sevens

Navy spoiled their chances with a few knock ons after good runs but they finally found the try zone when Seamus Siefring found a gap and broke a tackle to score under the posts. After Carid Scovill converted the try the score was 7-0.

Central Washington made it to the Navy 22-meter line but the solid Navy defense forced them into touch. After the lineout, Central Washington regained possession and pushed closer to the line. Sustained pressure paid off when Patrick Blair picked the ball off a ruck and dove over. With a successful conversion by Aaron Lee the match was tied at 7 at halftime.

In the second half, Navy intercepted a loose pass but again knocked the ball forward. Central Washington gathered it and Penisoni Rokocoko caught the pass and cut back past a Navy defender to dot down under the posts. Lee converted for the last score of the game, Central Washington taking the victory 14-7.
