Match Report for

Holy Cross (1st) vs. Colby College (1st)
27 October 2017

Location: Holy Cross

Holy Cross: 52    Colby College: 26

Beautiful Fall night for a rugby match. Game played on the artificial turf field under the lights at Holy Cross.

The spectators were treated to a great match of positive rugby, played by two determined, fast and good ball moving teams.

Holy Cross ended the first half 21-12 ahead on three converted tries to Colby's two tries and one conversion.

Holy Cross added two more tries and one conversion to Colby's one converted try when a Holy Cross player was yellow carded for a team repeated infringement. Colby quickly scored to pull within a converted try but Holy Cross held on, added three more tries and two conversions to end the scoring and walk off 52-26 winners.

Great match and huge credit to both teams captains and coaches for providing such an impressive example of college rugby at its best. Good luck to Holy Cross as they move on in the play-offs.

Referee: Don Jennings
