SCORE
Champlain College: 5    : 26


Semi-final playoff game for the emerging rugby clubs took place on a rain-soaked pitch on the campus of the University of Vermont. Fitchburg State scored two tries in the first fifteen minutes, including a long 60+ meter try tiptoeing down the sidelines, avoiding defenders, by one of the wings. Very few scrums in the first half, though there were some penalties made by Champlain due to inexperience, including some high tackles that led to two yellow cards being shown. Fitchburg continued to pressure in the second half, scoring two more tries, though Champlain didn't quit, scoring a try in the 77th minute to prevent the shutout. The whole game was played in great spirits, and a special thanks to the ARs, Chris 'Gusto' Davis and Bhuttu Matthews to give this match a true playoff feel.


Referee: Marcel Girouard
