It was a scorching day on a narrow football turf field- not the ideal conditions for a rugby match- but the athletes seemed focused on the task at hand.
Even though Penn drew first blood, they were unable to keep up the offensive pressure on the Princeton Tigers. Despite impressive defensive stands, Princeton was able to find holes and capitalize on the Quakers' missteps.
The Tigers outscored Penn 29 to 10 in the first half. The Quakers tightened up their D and played a much more competitive second half scoring once and only allowing 15 second half Princeton points.
Penn tries were scored by from Bridget Amoako (C'17) and Ariana Bray (C'15).
Carrying forward the momentum of a 61-10 victory over Cornell in their Ivy League fall opener, the Big Green delivered another impressive performance in Boston this past Saturday.
Cornell traveled to Hanover this past weekend to take on Dartmouth in a matchup of the 2013 Ivy South and Ivy North Champions.
Questions about the technicalities of last year’s Ivy League set up and the fallibility of comparison across Ivy League north/south conferences instilled extra significance into Saturday’s game.
Yale's 1st XV defeated the Quakers 12-5 on the opening weekend of Ivy rugby. Team captain Joseph Murdy led the offense with 4 penalty kicks against a Penn team that held the ball for large portions of the game but could not break the Bulldog's defense.
