Location: No location provided

Endicott College Women: 47    Merrimack College Women: 15

MC jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead behind dominant forward play, and it looked like a blowout was in the making as EC struggled to keep the ball for more than a few seconds at a time losing it in the heavy rain and wind, and then not securing their own ball in the tackle. It looked as if EC shuffled some personnel already on the field and got the jitters out and we're able to play positive rugby the second 20 of the first half and tie the match at the break. The turning point was with EC nearly scoring, but their #12 (playing 10 at this point) appeared to lose the ball forward in the in goal. On the ensuing scrum EC stole the ball and punched it in and then the flood gates opened as the EC back line was able to get the ball moving and when MC was able to make a tackle the team was not able to get around the tackle and EC just continued the attack away from the MC pack.

Two yellow cards were issued to MC, one for disrupting an EC quick tap and one for repeated team infringements (entering the ruck from the side)
