This was a competitive match between two well-coached college teams. The difference in the game was Salem State's sluggish start, with Eastern Connecticut State scoring three unanswered tries through their very capable centers in the first 13 minutes to take a 19-0 lead. The remainder of the game was well contested, with both teams playing at full tilt through to the final whistle. ECSU: 5 tries (4 conversions) and 2 penalties -- Salem State: 4 tries (3 converted).
