EXED EAGLES ARE INTERCOL 2024 9s Champions

Updated: Mar 15




Excelsior Community College Eagles defended their Intercollegiate rugby league 9s title on Saturday by defeating the University of West Indies Pelicans 18-4 in the finals at the University of Technology grounds.

 

The win concluded a flawless campaign for the Eagles, who finished with a perfect 6-0 record. National player Akeem Murray led the team with 10 points, scoring a try and kicking three goals. He was supported by Daniel Barham and Antwon Mckane, who each scored a try. The Pelicans' only score came from national player Hakeem Richard with a consolation try.

 

The finalists had contrasting paths to the championship game. Earlier in the semis, EXED comfortably got past Caribbean Maritime University Spartans 14-4 whilst the Pelicans dug dig deep to carve a 16-10 win over perennial rivals and hosts UTECH Knights.   Despite not making the top four, Mico University Crocs showed plenty improvements in their group games.





Winning coach Roy Calvert said, " The win is good for the EXED community. We are proud to be one of the most consistent programs and kudos must be given to the administration of the institution for there support . We look forward to strengthening the program."


Runner up coach Andrew Dixon said, " Making the finals was always the goal, unfortunately we missed out on the title. e snuggled a little with numbers and injuries throughout, but it was a good competition for all the teams and we saw lot of talented players on display. Congrats to EXED on a well deserved win.

 

Meanwhile, INTERCOL Rugby League Chair Romeo Monteith remarked, “Hearty congratulations to EXED on defending their title, they played excellent rugby league over the two Saturdays of competition and are deserving winners. All the teams gave excellent accounts of themselves, and we were thrilled to see several national players take the field for various teams. Next season should be even bigger and better for intercollegiate rugby league as institutions continue to rebuild their programs."
