San Diego Legion / Major League Rugby

HOUSTON — The Houston Sabercats recorded a go-ahead try with 90 seconds remaining, then the San Diego Legion barely failed to rally back on the game’s final play, allowing the hosts to hang on to a dramatic 31-26 decdsion in a battle of unbeaten clubs to highlight Major League Rugby action on SUnday (Mar. 5).

Houston (3-0) received a late score by NAME in the 79th minute. San Diego (2-1) responded with a drive deep into the “red zone” (for you American football fans), but a poor pass behind a wide open winger in Dan Pryor fell to the ground as time expired.


San Diego opened with a 14-0 lead, but the Sabercats answered with 17 straight before the contestr became a see-saw affair that wasn’t decided until the final seconds.

Still, San Diego picked up a bonus point to remain near the top of the MLR West Division standings. Houston (3-0 overall) leads with 15 points, followed by Seattle (13) and San Diego (12).

The Legion return home this Saturday (Mar. 11) at 5 p.m., host the Dallas Jackals at Snapdragon Stadium. FURTHER INFO.
