CEDAR FALLS ä The Iowa Central rugby team is willing to step in and take on anybody, anytime and at any field.
Recently, on a days notice, they did just that, replacing Western Illinois for a match with Northern Iowa here.
The Tritons posted a 43-22 victory as Jayden Williams recorded nine tackles and was 3-for-6 on conversions with a try.
"We took 30 guys to UNI and the Hostile Hilltop," ICCC head coach Brent Nelson. "The guys were really pumped when I told them I had some good news and bad news (before the match). I said we would be busy after thinking they had the day off, but when I said it was to play UNI, they let out a collective cheer.
"That is just how this group is. They want to play as much as possible."
Iowa Central takes on Davenport on Saturday.
