Rugby club looking for a few good Barbarians

The Tampa Bay Barbarians rugby club is getting ready for the 2009 season at its new home near Wharton High School and behind Hilda Turner Elementary School at 9190 Imperial Oak Blvd.

The club will hold sign-up and registration for the 2009 season Oct. 18-25 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the New Tampa Library, 10001 Cross Creek Blvd.

Practices start in November and will run from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information, go to

The national tournament ran from July 30 to Aug. 10 and was divided into birth years starting with 2000. All the kids on the 1998 team play at New Port Richey's Sportszone2.

Florida met Ohio in the final and would spoil their hopes of hoisting the prized Gold Cup in front of their hometown fans with an emphatic 7-0 victory. The Florida team was led by New Port Richey's Anthony Dunn, who won Championship MVP honors with a hat trick in the final. Five players for the team were selected as Team America All-Stars. Dunn and fellow Pasco resident Nathan Smith were among the five selected.

FOOTBALL: The Wesley Chapel Cowboys football program was able to beat Brandon at all age levels Saturday. The Midgets 42-0 victory was the largest margin of victory as the Cowboys had a running clock in the second half after going into halftime with a 30-0 lead.
