Match Report for

Holy Cross (1st) vs. Salem State University (1st)
14 October 2017

Location: Holy Cross

Holy Cross: 56    Salem State University: 38

This was a very physical game and two very well coached teams. The HC Backline played Champagne Rugby with their crisp passing. Both teams swapped leads a few times throughout the match. In the first half, Salem State was kept in the game by #13, who picked off two balls for 60M & 70M scores. Salem State just ran out of gas the last 10 minutes of the match in which Holy Cross put up two quick tries and put the game away.

Notable players Salem State: #9, #13 #12, #11 (who is the fastest player I have ever seen play Rugby, Carlin Isles look out) Holy Cross: #9, #10, #12, #3, #2 (who took the ball at pace, pop kicked over 2 defenders, caught in mid air for a try)

Referee: Tom Beriau
