Stonehill College Women (1st) vs. (1st)
11 November 2017

Location: Stonehill College 320 Washington St North Easton, MA 02357

Stonehill College Women: 10    : 53

A well contested game that was well balanced for the first half before the visitors got the upper hand in the second half.

The home side got off to a quick start with two tries in the first ten minutes thanks to some good handling in the backline and impressive running and finishing from the fullback. The visitors responded with three tries of their own from their number eight, flyhalf and full back, each of whom featured prominently in the game. The scrums and lineouts were well contested and the first half featured some aggressive running up front and good handling out wide. Marist entered the half time break five points to the good.

Marist took the initiative in the second half and ran in six tries, four of which were converted. The fullback and number eight again got on the scoreboard along with a couple from their outside center and one each from the replacement prop and scrumhalf.

Discipline was excellent throughout with both sides maintaining their defensive line well and responding to instruction. There were a number of incidents of players playing a knocked on ball in front of their teammate and handling the ball on the floor that led to penalties but the penalty count was reasonably low with no foul play.

Referee: Michael O'Connor
