Updated – A couple of scores … and thanks for the pins!

Out west, Belmont Shore defeated Scottsdale, 20-15. Update: Read the complete recap from Shore here (right sidebar, top link).

Belmont Shore won a close match against Scottsdale this weekend, thanks in large part to consistent goalkicking from flyhalf Jennifer Shockley.

Both teams expected this to be their toughest league game of the spring and the match lived up to expectations. Though Belmont held the lead all game, they were under constant pressure.

Also thanks to Dianna for letting us know that the Army women played Dartmouth this past weekend at home. A side won 24-0 and the B side won 5-0.

Update: More scores! Hedwig from the New York Rugby Club e-mailed me …

Hey There,
On a crazy spring day (some of us greeted the hail storm in our tank tops) in Staten Island, NY the New York senior women played their second game of the season against a young Maryland side. Jenna Flateman ran in 4 tries on the wing and Heidi Rubenstein was queen of the lineout on the day. Maryland forwards put the pressure on in the first half but in the second half New York’s pace and fitness came through with 50 unanswered points.

There’s pictures here, a write-up (more for clubmembers than anything else) on our website, and you can check who’s on our roster (with a profile on each player) here.

thanks for bringing us the news!


Another e-mail from out west, the Harlequin Olde Girls beat the visiting KC Jazz by a hair, 8-7. HOG try and a converted penalty by Val Griffeth. By the way, Firecracker, aka Kimmie K., are you now checking in from your new job in Denver? We miss you!! E-mail me and Pinkie, okay.

    i was there (on staten island)! the pitch wasn’t easy to find and when we finally found it, it started to rain. i was wet to the bones.
    but then sun and wind dried my clothes and i saw an interesting match, although i was not so sure on some of the refs decisions…
    back in old europe now and jetlagged as hell.
    pics will be available on flickr as soon as i have recovered from the flight.

    and referring to the post before, the ref adressing high tackles: i’ve never seen that many highn tackles being un-whistled by the ref as in the game nyrc vs maryland. in germany, somenone would have asked the ref for taking more care on this…
