Warm sunny day played on a very hot turf field. The field was used for multiple events so the markings were tough to see. The touch line was less than 5meters from a chain link fence. Both teams showed up to play and played fast physical rugby. Great passes and hard running forwards dominated the day. Fairfield struck first but Tufts responded, followed by another quick try by Fairfield University. The game came down to the to the wire with Tufts scoring 2 tries within the last 12 minutes to put them ahead. Fairfield had possesion for the last 5 minutes inside their own 22 meter. But Tufts held them with strong defence.
