Match Report for

Mad River/Stowe (1st) vs. Burlington (1st)
23 September 2017

Location: Stowe Polo Fields, Stowe, VT Parking at Pitch.

SCORE
Mad River/Stowe: 40    Burlington: 12


The match was played in stifling heat on Mad River/Stowe's full sized pitch. In the first half Burlington made a number of errors that MR/S capitalized on leading to a 26-5 half time score ( for MR/S 4 tries, 3 converted and Burlington , one unconverted try) Mad River/Stowe's lead was just too much for Burlington to overcome in the second half as both teams wilted in the heat. MR/S did manage to score two converted tires and Burlington one converted try. MR/S was lead by its workhorse #8 and its captain # 9 who along with its twin backs (literally identical twins ) carved up Burlington throughout the match. Burlington's #10 scored both of its tires--one on a nice over the top pop kick that he retrieved and the second with a nice set of moves where he cut through MR/S's backs. This is a keen rivalry and to the credit of both sides despite the heat and the rivalry it was played with the best of sportsmanship.


Referee: Christopher Davis
