Match Report for

Dartmouth College Women (2nd) vs. University of New England Women (Other)
24 September 2016

Location: Brophy Field, Corey Ford Rugby Clubhouse, Hanover NH

Dartmouth College Women: 31    University of New England Women: 34

Dartmouth 31 (5 Tries, 3 Con), UNE 34 (6 Tries, 2 Con) First 20: Dartmouth 7-1T, 1C, UNE 10-2T; 2nd 20: Dartmouth 5-1T, UNE 14-2T, 2C; 3rd 20:Dartmouth 12-2T, 1C, UNE 5-1T; 4th 20: Dartmouth 7-1T, 1C, UNE 5-1T. This was played as a developmental match with both clubs substituting liberally in the four 20 min periods. The University of New England sides were outstanding with their close-in running and maintaining possession in the breakdown, as well as their defensive discipline. Their defensive line was always straight and behind their offside line. Dartmouth had a strong pack and "found" two new props who played very well in the scrum set pieces. Both sides had backs who broke tackles as well as making them while on defense. The match ended with a try in extra time to UNE after a UNE lineout and multiple phases, which surely made their bus ride home a very cheerful experience. Post-match, Dartmouth hosted an exceptional social for both clubs and match official. Good day for both clubs.
