Very exciting match under the lights at Bates' home turf field. Maine Maritime started with a bang and took a 12-0 lead scoring two tries and a conversion. Bates came back with a try and a penalty kick to bring the first half to a close with MMA holding a 12-8 lead.

The second half scoring started with another successful Bates penalty kick to draw them closer to MMA, 12-11. MMA struck back with an strong individual try by their big flanker who shrugged off or carried 5 or 6 would-be Bates tacklers to increase their lead to 17-11. An MMA high/dangerous tackle on their own goal line resulted in a converted penalty try to Bates, allowing them to take the lead for the first time, 18-17. MMA's big flanker scored again in a similar fashion and MMA led 22-18. Bates' #12 then blazed through a MMA mid-field gap for a run-in try and a 23-22 lead, which held up for the win. Great performance by both teams!
