Saturday, September 28, 2019

The Cornell team was led by team captain Deena Scoville ‘20 and Kayla deLuze ‘21. Both teams fought exceptionally well and capitalized on each other’s mistakes to score tries all over the field.

Both teams could not have asked for a better day to play rugby at 10:30 am on a Saturday morning in Ithaca. Saturday's match was Cornell’s second and Columbia’s first of the season. 

Cornell led with 5 tries to 3 in the first half 27-15. The second half Columbia closed that gap with Cornell 4 tries to 2 at 22-14.

Rookie Bianca Tseng in her first 15s game was one of the key players that is responsible for moving the ball all over the field and she rewarded herself by scoring 3 tries. Rookie Abby Gorra also in her first 15s game made a great impact on the right wing with her 1st try. 

Cornell would like to thank Columbia for making the effort to play their home game away at Cornell.
