Match Report for

Western New England College (1st) vs. Wheaton College (1st)
03 November 2018

Location: Western New England University Rugby Pitch

SCORE
Western New England College: 35    Wheaton College: 19


With Wheaton struggling to shake off a long drive and late arrival, Western New England owned the first half on this very windy day. WNE's No. 8 and scrumhalf worked well together at the scrum, mixing up No. 8 picks with long, wide distribution to their backs. WNE scored four unanswered tries to take a 20 - 0 lead into the break.

Wheaton recovered and actually won the second half 19 - 15, with their No. 8 bulling his way through for three tries, two of them under the posts, which made conversions at least possible with a gusty 25 kt crosswind that gave kickers fits all afternoon.

A fast, hard, clean game on WNE's beautiful full-size natural grass pitch.


Referee: Dean Jorgensen
