Cool, sunny day but pitch was wet from last weeks rain. Still had good footing. Both sides came out playing good, hard rugby. Most of the action initially was between the 22s. Colby opened the scoring with an unconverted try in the 18th minute.Shortly thereafter UMaine evened the score with a nice long run by their backs to score an unconverted try in the 23d minute and then repeated with a converted try in the 27th minute. This score held for the rest of the half. Colby jumped out for a quick try in the 43d minute that was converted. Colby then took the lead with an unconverted try in the 49th minute. Colby went down a player in the sin bin and UMaine took advantage with an converted try 2 minutes later. The back and forth continued without score for the next 20 minutes until Colby scored an unconverted try in the 71st minute to bring the score to 22-17. UMaine mounted a strong attack but Colby was able to keep them at bay until the final whistle.
