In the second match, played only five minutes after the first match, was always going to be a tough ask for Yale’s roster. UPenn interchanged frequently ensuring they had fresh legs. However, it was Yale who struck first with a huge solo effort from Reanna Wauer who burst through defenders to score under the posts. Reanna converted their own try to take their total points haul for the day to 21. Tiredness set in for Yale which UPenn capitalized on, who went on to win the game 17-7.
