Women’s Rugby Storms Past Boston College, 105-0
Harvard improved its spring record to 2-1 Saturday against Boston College (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A three-week layoff from competition did little to deter the Harvard women's rugby team, as the Crimson silenced local rival Boston College by a score of 105-0 Saturday at Cumnock Field. With the win, Harvard improves to 7-3 on the season and 2-1 on its spring schedule.
Harvard scored at will through the entire competition Saturday, getting contributions from many players on the squad. Those with particularly strong games came from the freshman class, as Gabby Wilson, Caroline Park, Claire Collins, Mariah Turner, Alice Linder and Maryssa Barron all played key roles in the victory. Park, Collins and Turner all had tries on the day for the Crimson. Captains Ali Haber, Shelby Lin and Brooke Kantor did well to keep the composure of the team during the lopsided victory.
Next up, the Crimson plays its lone road match of the spring, as it takes on Penn State April 5 in an 11:30 a.m., start.
