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 …
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.
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.
