Weather was partly cloudy with Cumulus clouds , Temp 12 degrees C, the score did not reflect the competitive nature of this particular match. Both teams were energized to play. Initially attitude was an issue forDartmouth, as they had difficulty properly finding correct scrummaging and cast the blame on a maguffin. I instructed both teams on proper scrummage position,gave the time to readjust, and they finally fell in to formation. UMass Dart. Was clearly the more capable side, however Wheaton did not give up, as a team. Wheaton continued throughout the match to gain tactical and strategic advantage, but they were thwarted towards the end of their back line by themselves either being caught flat-footed when effective passes made a Try possible or no following player to which to pop the ball to, Finishers. Either by fitness or camaraderie, but also the last player had trouble knowing what to do with a good pass, a good fake or creative solution to the opposition.
