Match Report for

MIT Women (MIT 1st XIV) vs. Worcester Polytechnic Institute Women (Worcester Polytechnic 1st XIV)
17 September 2011

Location: MIT

MIT Women: 36    Worcester Polytechnic Institute Women: 5

On a bright and sunny Saturday morning, MIT took on WPI in Cambridge, on a beautifully lined pitch. MIT struck first, putting in a try at just the 1 minute mark. They were able to strike again just 6 minutes later. At that point WPI started to put together some offensive phases and stopped all MIT attacks with solid defense. It wasn't enough to stop MIT, though and they were able to put in 2 more tries before the half.

The second half was more of a balanced contest, with MIT scoring first, but when an MIT player received a yellow card for dangerous play, WPI took advantage of their extra player and scored their only try of the game. MIT put one more in before the game ended and the final was MIT 36, WPI 5

There were several injuries during the match, but the onsite medical staff, were wonderful.

Referee: Erin Broderick
