This was billed as a heavy-weight battle and it did not disappoint. Those who came were entertained with some physical play and heavy forward ball. Orono maintained position well and used continuous possession to setup running lines for their athletic forwards. The first try for Orono was shortly answered by a nifty kick and chase from the MMA flyhalf that caught the UMaine defense off-guard. UMO answered with an additional try before the half which brought the count to 12-5. The 2nd half was very similar to the first. Orono controlled possession and when MMA was able to get some ball, their pattern of play was disrupted by the Orono defense. The highlight of the 2nd half came when MMA was awarded a penalty 15m from the goal line and passed it to a large, hard running forward who ripped through the UMaine defense for a try that got a roar from the visiting crowd. Overall, it was a physical contest and both sides displayed self-control and sportsmanship in this rivalry match.

Referee: Travis Rowell
