On Day 1, we’ll be gearing up to watch the Phoenix Heat, the #2 ranked club in the USQRA (United States Quad Rugby Association) take on the Ontario Lightning in the first match of the day.. Nearly the entire Phoenix club has been invited to participate at the USA Wheelchair Rugby selection camp. Scott Hogsett, Joe Delagrave, and Nick Springer also appeared in the 2012 London Paralympics, where they USA took bronze. The Ontario Lightning are no slouches either – their roster features longtime Canadian national team staple Garrett Hickling and paralympian Jason Crone.
On court B, we have the Ontario Thunder facing off against the Alberta Roughnecks. The Thunder will be working hard to contain the speedy Zak Madell, considered one of the most dominant players in the world.
We have a lot of games over the weekend, so check back as we update with scores and stories, and if you’re in the area, get over here!
