Dartmouth hosted Yale this past weekend in front of a terrific Homecoming crowd at Brophy Field. It was the teams’ second meeting and the Big Green’s last home match of the fall XVs season. Yale had been playing good rugby in recent weeks and Dartmouth went into the game looking to implement the systems and goals they’d been working towards in practice and improve on their previous performance. The Big Green scored first and played strongly for eighty minutes en route to an 81-12 victory.
Brown and Harvard are all tied in the North and in second place. The winner will have the edge for qualifying for the playoffs. Harvard won the first match on the road at Brown giving them the edge as the Bears travel north to Harvard's home turf.
Harvard held a one point margin at the break 14-13, with an intense first half of back and forth rugby. Harvard then managed to outscore Yale in the second half by four tries to just one led by fly half Nick Moore '14.
Harvard traveled to rival Yale this past weekend, looking to end the regular Ivy League season on a high note. The HRFC left Cambridge early Saturday morning and looked ready to play after the familiar bus ride to New Haven.
