Match Report for

Middlebury College (1st) vs. University of New Hampshire (1st)
24 September 2016

Location: Middle bury College

SCORE
Middlebury College: 58    University of New Hampshire: 3


The match was played on Middlebury's full sized pitch that was in excellent condition. It was a typical cool (60 degrees) mostly sunny day with a slight breeze. A perfect day for rugby and especially Middlebury's open style lead but its powerful captain and center and more than amply supported by his nifty outside center , wings and fullback. At Half Middlebury's lead 27- 3 scoring 4 tries, 2 converted and a penalty kick. In the second half it added 5 more tries 3 of which were converted. The score is a bit misleading for when UNH had possession it managed numerous phases but just could not convert while Middlebury's used a number of long runs to score its tries especially in the second half as UNH tired a bit. Both teams played with great spirit and sportsmanship
