Beast of East, 4/12 – 4/13, win

Last weekend we headed down to Rhode Island to compete in the largest collegiate rugby tournament in the eastern United States. We were a bit nervous going into it, having just 15 people with no subs.

The first day week came out hard and gained two well-earned wins in the first round of pool play over Wentworth and Brandeis. With these high scores, we were able to go into the quarterfinals on Sunday with the number 1 seed.

Unfortunately our opponent in the quarterfinals, Franklin Pierce did not show up and we won by forfeit. Our next game was the semifinal match up with Roger Williams, which we won 43 – 0 despite some issues with penalties. Finally, we met Plymouth State in the final and won the D 3 Women’s Championship title with a score of 19 – 5.

We were incredible proud of our ability to dominate this tournament, given our lack of subs and limited ability to practice this spring due to weather. Every player did an excellent job, and we returned to Vermont with an aggregate score of 137 – 5, and a shiny trophy cup!

Day 1
Wentworth: 43 – 0
Brandeis: 32 – 0

Day 2
Franklin Pierce:  forfeit
Roger Williams: 43 – 0
Plymouth: 19 – 5
