Match Report for

Burlington (1st) vs. Old Gold (1st)
16 September 2017

Location: Tree Farm - Essex Junction, VT

SCORE
Burlington: 32    Old Gold: 22


Until late in the second half, this was a close and competitive match played under a sunny sky and in mid-summer heat. Burlington opened the scoring with a try but Old Gold quickly responded with two tries, one converted, to take a 12 to 5 lead. With two more tries each in the half, Old Gold led 19 to 15. Burlington's forwards controlled the scrums such that Old Gold was often moving backwards making it difficult to get productive ball to its backs. While both teams struggled with the heat, Burlington added three tries and one conversion in the second half while Old Gold managed a penalty kick. Both teams showed good discipline; that the penalty count was fairly low and the game had flow.


Referee: Christopher Ekman
