SCORE
University of Maine - Farmington: 12    Bates College: 17


In a wonderfully spirited season opener for both teams, the UMF hosts drew first blood with a backline try , but the Bates men countered with two first half tries of their own to go into the break with a 12-5 lead. The visitors, who were led all afternoon by their powerful #8 and the hard running of their inside center, applied most of the pressure for the first 30 minutes of the second half, but a long range try against the run of play by UMF's inside center knotted things at 12-12 with 15 minutes remaining. The Bates men dominated possession after that and when their #8 went over after picking up at the back of a scrum the visitors were well deserved winners.
