Boston University (1st) vs. University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth (1st)
21 October 2017

Location: Nickerson Field

SCORE
Boston University: 35    University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth: 7


The match was a tale of two halves.

In the 1st half, BU established themselves as a slightly better team, but committed too many penalties. UMD also had some athletes on their side that gave their squad scoring chances, however poor ball security stopped them from taking a lead. BU scored unconverted tries in the 3rd & 25th minute, while UMD scored a converted try at the end of the half making the score 10-7 in BU's favor.

During the 2nd half, BU cleaned up their act and committed far fewer infringements which allowed their offense to turn scoring chances into scoring plays. UMD had some nice runs, but were always an off-load pass or two from reaching the try zone. BU scored unconverted tries in the 48th, 53rd, 59th, 69th & 78th minute to make the final score 35-7.
