Match Report for

Burlington Women (1st) vs. Worcester Shamrocks (1st)
14 October 2017

Location: Field 1

Burlington Women: 12    Worcester Shamrocks: 21

Perfect autumn conditions for rugby. Both sides came to play and scored early converted tries. Match was tie 7-7 at the 11th minute through half time with sustained possession by both teams via forward play, pick-&-go, crashes... Worchester returned from the break getting their back line more involved. Producing converted tries by their winger at the 47th and 54th minutes. Then both sides keep ball mostly in the forwards-- smash mouth style. Cynical and negative play by both side's more wiley veterans seemed to need much more explanation than their experience level would suggest. Burlington fought on and were able to touch down a try at the 74th minute. However, Worchester was able to maintain their 21-12 lead as full time arrived.

Referee: Mark Kanya
