This past weekend, the Dartmouth Rugby Club hosted Harvard in the Ivy Championship game. Both teams had been unbeaten in their Ivy rugby match ups, thus setting the stage for a big showdown between the two teams. Both teams fought bravely with Dartmouth ending up the victors, winning by a score of 51-19.
It was a tale of two halves as Brown took a 12-0 lead into the half in what was described as a fierce wind. The match changed as Dartmouth took the wind into the second half and after tying the match 12-12 near the 60 minute mark of the match, scored with two minutes left to go to win 19-12.
Cornell visited Yale for a 1 p.m. match. Tries by Charlie Hill '18, Jacob Woocher '16 and Luke Thomas '16 with three conversions by Evan Brown '16 helped Yale to a 21-13 win. There has been some positive play for the Bulldogs this Fall, with Yale scoring 18 tries in their 5 league games.
Yale topped Cornell 20-10 in the Plate Final of the 2015 Ivy 15s Tournament in Hanover, NH on Sunday. The Bulldogs shut out Penn 72-0 the day before. The following write-ups are by Yale coach Craig Wilson.
