Match Report for

Southern Connecticut State University Women (1st) vs. Bentley University Women (1st)
21 October 2017

Location: New Haven Rugby Club

Southern Connecticut State University Women: 12    Bentley University Women: 48

Bentley won this clash of two undefeated New England teams in convincing fashion. On a perfect fall day at "The Boulevard," Bentley smothered the Southern attack with a disciplined defense. On offense, Bentley captain and No. 8 Emma Santosuosso guided her team to an eight-try-to-two win with all but one of their tries coming from their back-row forwards (Emma scoring five, herself). Southern lifted itself in the second half, playing with more focus, but Bentley kept to its game plan and held its ground.

The clubs put out their 'B' sides for a 40-minute scrimmage, giving many new ruggers some quality playing time.

Great atmosphere at The Boulevard plus a successful fundraiser for breast cancer research.

Referee: Dean Jorgensen
