Brown Men's 2nds Over Yale 17-5

Forwards were solid in the scrum as Yale players and coaches look on

Monday, October 8, 2018

Yale was able to field a full Second XV which provided the Brown Seconds with its first full match in several weeks.

Brown took immediate control and scored three first half tries to lead 17-0 at halftime. The first try was scored by Amar Dhillon, a freshman who had arrived at Brown in September recovering from an injury. Amar, now healthy, and playing center, broke for 40 meters for his first Brown try, converted by Nathan Zaldivar. Number 8 Chase Bekkerus followed up with two tries within 4 minutes. Soti George made several strong runs and was unlucky not to score. 

In the second half Brown brought in some reserves. Although Brown was unable to score again, the Bears gave up but one try in the match. Scrum half Justin Vandervelden and fly half Zaldivar provided good ball to the backs and the forwards were solid in the Brown scrums and lineouts. Freshman flanker Adam Eberle, the man of the match, made some terrific tackles and was all over the field. "If we can keep this unit together for the rest of the season, the team should continue to play well."
