A great effort by the men of YGRFC today against B sides from SCSU and Yale undergrad. 8-5 and 12-0 wins, respectively. Outstanding plays from Kristian and Simon, with some Scottish hospitality added by Paddy.
A gritty team effort against SCSU with a strong defence helped us hold onto a win.
We shut out the Yale undergrads and dominated posession to score with both our forwards and backs, thus extending our perfect record for the Spring season thus far.
After a warming up first half, we played a competitive second half where we tied the game.
Southern vs Old Black 12-40
Yale vs Dartmouth 7-5
Cornell vs Southern 14-5
Cornell vs Old Black 21-7
Runner up spot:
Cornell vs Dartmouth 26-12
The combine Yale-Conell team stayed undefeated in the group stages with convincing wins over NYU and Wharton B side. However, we were undone in the semi finals against a physical Hogfest side. We lost by 3 tries but the game was closer than the score suggested. We made key mistakes but still put up a good fight towards the end.
We defeated a spirited NYU side even with most of our side unavailable. The final score was 21-15
We dominated both our group games against Gotham and the NYU undergrads, with our backs scoring many tries. We did not concede any tries as our defensive efforts were top class.
We were up against a spirited Cornell side and were evenly matched in the first half. In the second half, we rained in 3 tries and won the game.
