SCORE
University of Maine - Farmington: 34    University of Maine - Orono: 0


Hot day, but both sides came ready to play. Scoring opened in the 16th minute with Farmington scoring an unconverted try followed 10 minutes later with another try. Orono made several good runs but handling errors and some unfortunate turnovers kept them out of the in-goal. In the 36th minute Farmington intercepted an errant pass and scored a converted try which brought the half time score to 17-0. Farmington had much the better of the second half with 3 tries, one converted. The 90 degree temperature began to take a toll on both sides, but Orono never gave up. As in the first half, Orono missed a few opportunities to score due to handling errors and turn overs. The final score line of 34-0 did not reflect the quality of play by both sides.


Referee: Dan Mannschreck
