The Pittsburgh Harlequins beat the Raleigh Vipers this weekend at Founders Field 40-12.  

The Scoring started with the Harlequins running aggressive lines in the backs culminating in Fullback Anthony D’Antonio touching down between the posts.  Nick Koon had the successful conversion, along with the following 12 points for the Harlequins- touching down two times in the first half.

Raleigh was able to get on the board with an unconverted try and went into the locker room at half time trailing the Home team 19-5.

With minimal tactical changes from both teams, the second half looked much like the first.  Nick Koon was able to crossed the line for a converted try three minutes into the half, with Raleigh scoring what would turn out to be the end of their points on the day just three minutes later.
