US Coast Guard Academy: 69    Quinnipiac University: 7

Coast Guard withstood Quinnipiac's initial surge, which gave them an opening penalty try, and quickly asserted their dominance, which continued without letup for the remainder of the match. Quinnipiac had size and a decent understanding of the rugby law, but Coast Guard to a man were fitter, stronger, and more disciplined (in the sense of sticking to their patterns and communicating efficiently with each other). The Coast Guard squad are all committed and fierce tacklers, hard runners, and to their great credit, uncommonly good sportsmen.
