Match Report for

Mount Holyoke College (1st) vs. Worcester Polytechnic Institute Women (1st)
17 September 2016

Location: Kendall Sports and Dance Complex, Mount Holyoke, 50 College Street, South Hadley, MA, 01075

Mount Holyoke College: 10    Worcester Polytechnic Institute Women: 25

The perfect rugby day attended by two enjoyable sides. Good clean knowledgeable play by both sides, especially considering the generous sprinkling of new players. Even though WPI came out on top scorewise, both teams were fairly evenly matched. Time of possession was fairly even. WPI was a bit stronger in phase work and control of such and that was probably the difference. Conversion kicks were a challenge for both sides. Mt. Holyoke tries at 43 and 78 minutes. No successful conversion kicks. WPI tries at 7, 19, 28,32, and 50 minutes. No successful conversion kicks.

Most impressive was how the rookies were able to step up and appear reasonably comfortable in their respective roles. Good omens for the future for both sides. Personally a great way to begin the 2016 Fall season.

Referee: Dan Spada
