Match Report for

Norwich University Women (1st) vs. University of New England Women (1st)
02 September 2017

Location: Northfield Vermont

SCORE
Norwich University Women: 58    University of New England Women: 5


Rugby can still be played by people of all sizes as evidenced by Norwich's current team. Norwich managed 5 tries in each half (converting two in each half) lead by its big powerful forwards--but amply supported by its smaller quick #9 and backs. UNE played hard throughout but had difficulty getting sufficient possession or dealing with Norwich's strong counterattacks. When UNE did get the ball to its fast wings it was quite dangerous and managed a long well scored try in the first half. This was a very well played match for the first game for each team of the season . There were few penalties and good spirit and sportsmanship throughout.


Referee: Christopher Davis
