: No Score Reported    : No Score Reported

Cool, cloudy fall afternoon played on the awesome rugby Harrington pitch at Babson College.

Both teams played their way into the final by winning their semi-final matches the day before.

It was clear from the beginning this was a final, with both teams playing hard spirited rugby before 100+ spectators.

Salve Regina opened the scoring with a converted try in the 8th minute and followed with another converted try three minutes later. However, Springfield battled back adding a converted try of their own on the 21st minute. With five minutes left in the half, Salve Regina added an unconverted try and with time winding down in the half, added a converted try to lead 26-7 at half-time.

The second half saw more of the same from the first half however Salve Regina made the most of their chances adding five more tries and one conversion while Springfield responded with two more converted tries to close out the scoring.

Great match befitting a collegiate final. A credit to both team's captains for keeping their team's emotions in check and doing their best to keep the game within the spirit of the laws.
