Providence v Burlington was a NERFU Division 3 Club Men's League Match. It was played on a slightly narrow grass field on a beautiful fall day.

The final score was not reflective of how tightly contested the match was played. Through the first 35 minutes, the match was dead even with both sides scoring two tries each … Providence scored first at the 3rd minute, Burlington tied the score at the 6th minute, Providence moved ahead at the 28th minute, and Burlington tied again at the 32nd minute.

The break in the deadlock came at the 36th minute when the Burlington #8 was suspended for team repeat infringement - not rolling away. In the span of his suspension, Providence scored 4 tries … at the 36th, 39th (26-14 at Half), 43rd and 46th minutes.

In the remainder of the second half, while Burlington was still playing competitively, the stronger Providence side put in 3 additional tries (55th, 68th, and 76th minutes). 59-14 Full.
