Fitchburg State College: 20    Mitchell College: 20

A wet and rainy day on the Fitchburg State College football turn. Mitchell unfortunately only showed up with 15 players. Although they seemed like a motley crew of players, they were athletic and came to play rugby. They started the game off with a couple of long runs that would eventually end in scores for them. Fitchburg were the more structured but struggled to hold on to the ball in the wet conditions. The second half was a close contest with Fitchburg pulling back even with about 10 minutes left. With less than a minute remaining, Fitchburg retained possession and entered Mitchell's 22. Just meters from the line, Mitchell held the ball carrier up, a maul was formed and collapsed in-goal. Ball was held up, and the game ended in a 20-20 draw.
