Brown Women Continue, Dartmouth Men Play for Pride

LBUQUERQUE, N.M. – In the USA Rugby National Guard Men’s and Women’s College Club Playoffs two teams from the Ivies took the pitch in the first round of the Division I Men’s and Women’s competition.

In the men's round of 16, No. 2 seed BYU overpowered the Ivies only men's representative, No. 15 seed Dartmouth College 48-22. Dartmouth made it to the round of 16 qualifying throught the New England Union.

In the Women’s Division I Playoffs, Brown University looked polished in its win against West Chester University on Friday. West Chester (No. 12) actually scored first in the match, but then went 67 minutes without another step in goal. In the meantime, the fifth-ranked Brown team scored 43 consecutive points and would end up with a 50-12 win over the Mid-Atlantic’s Golden Rams.

Brown will now face University of California-Davis on Saturday as the Aggies clinched a similarly convincing victory over its UCLA opposition, with their 50-12 victory to round out the last match of the day at Balloon Fiesta Park.
