29 October 2016

Location: Western Conn. State U. Rugby Field, Danbury, CT

A wonderfully competitive and open game to close out the season for both clubs. Quinnipiac jumped out to an early 5-0 lead on a great forward drive before both sides settled into a defensive dual. Western led at the half through a converted try and a penalty goal and jumped out to a 15-8 lead two minutes into the second half, before Quinnipiac capitalized on playing a man up to even the score with 23 minutes to play. Quinnipiac went ahead with a try off a quick penalty at 64 minutes and were able to hold on despite attack after attack from Western. An enjoyable game for the fans and the referee.

Referee: Dean Jorgensen
