Match Report for

University of Vermont Women (1st) vs. US Coast Guard Academy Women (1st)
23 September 2017

Location: UVM Rugby Pitch

University of Vermont Women: 17    US Coast Guard Academy Women: 68

Unseasonably hot day, and a well conditioned Coast Guard team scored in the first minute off the opening kickoff using a few good offloads to score in the corner. They repeated the feat on the ensuing kickoff, taking a 10-0 lead before a ruck had even formed in the match. UVM's defense quickly adjusted and slowed down the Coast Guard offense and was down 27-0 at the break. In the second half, UVM was able to mount consistent offense by keeping the ball in tight with the pack, scoring three tries, but was unable to keep up with the athletes on Coast Guard, who scored seven tries and won going away. Great effort by all involved despite the heat.

Referee: Marcel Girouard
