Match Report for

University of Maine - Orono (1st) vs. Bates College (1st)
24 September 2016

Location: University of Maine

University of Maine - Orono: 10    Bates College: 9

A game filled with handling errors and penalties from over enthusiasm. The home side had a size advantage which they put to good use in the set piece and open play running through the middle but were unable to convert on most occasions. The visitors 8, 10 and 12 controlled the midfield well saving their team on multiple occasions. It was they who took the lead through a penalty kick and followed up with two others for a 9-0 lead at the half. The home team came out strong again in the second half scoring an early try but not able to convert. A second score midway through the half, again unconverted, put them ahead. Bates had opportunities to go ahead, a penalty kick into the wind falling short and a decision to go to the corner proved costly, but never looked threatening to the try line.

Referee: Richard Leonard
