23 September 2017

Location: Northfield, Vermont

SCORE
Norwich University Women: 45    Brown University Women: 31


The match was played on Norwich's full sized fully grassed and well marked pitch on a very hot day. It was a track meet from the outset. In the first half Norwich scored 3 tries converting 2 and Brown scored 2 tries converting one. All 5 tries involved runs with multiple passes between players of over 50 meters. Norwich started the second half leading 19-12 and quickly added another converted try. But Brown scored another try (unconverted) and then its center intercepted a pass and ran 25 meters to score under the posts . The try was converted and now Brown was down by just 2 points. But in the final 25 minutes using its substitutes liberally Norwich pulled ahead with 3 more tries converting two of them. Brown had only 2 subs and could just not maintain the pace in the heat but did manage a converted try at the close of the game. Norwich was lead by it stellar captain #8 and its speedy wings and hard running #12. Brown's captain was also excellent and its #15 had some incredible runs with some very nifty moves.
