Naples teams win pair of titles in beach 7s rugby tournament Just before the start of the second half of the men's open championship rugby match, Skip Green of the Naples Hammerheads looked at teammate Ryan Shore and said, "Let's see some magic out there."

Shore proceeded to take the second-half kickoff back for a score that sparked the Hammerheads to a 16-7 win over the University of Florida on Saturday in their sixth Barefoot Beach 7s Rugby Tournament behind Holiday Inn on Fort Myers Beach.

Joining Naples as a champion was Naples-Coconut Grove in the women's open division. Called the Hawaiian Hotties for this tournament, they beat the University of Central Florida 13-4.

Fort Lauderdale defeated Naples 20-4 for the old boys' over 35 title and the Tampa Pelicans beat the Fort Lauderdale Nomads 20-3 for the high school championship.

After winning their first two games 31-5 and 30-8, Naples found itself down 7-3 at halftime after the Gators took advantage of a second turnover to score. In beach rugby, teams have seven players, there are seven-minute halves and they get three, four or five points depending on where they take the ball in the Tri Zone.

"The guys were not having fun," said Larry Fox, who is Naples' main coach in the fall for 15-man rugby. "They were not relaxed. They were stiff. In sports, that will happen if you're a little nervous.

"But once they got going ... they're a very powerful team."

Shore changed the momentum entirely when he broke two tackles and stayed in bounds on his five-point tally.

"Maybe a foot," he said of how far he was from going out of bounds. "The guy hanging on my jersey was out of bounds.''

A former college rugby player at Maryland, Shore added, "I could taste momentum in our factor. We played with more patience, made tackles and played better as a team. We had two silly throwaways and they capitalized well on mistakes."

Cameron Dolan of Estero added two scores for Naples during the second half.

Fort Myers' Tatum Walker had four scores in tournament play as Naples-Coconut Grove won its matches by a combined total of 76-4.

"I got great passes thrown to me," said Walker, who used to play soccer at Fort Myers High School. "I love it."

Veronica Gray-Hoppe of Fort Myers, who had some nice tackles, said defense was the key in her team's victory.

"We knew they had some speedy girls on their team so we knew we had to make tackles," she said. "We also had good charisma on offense."
