The two-time defending national women's varsity champion Quinnipiac women's rugby team opened its 2017 season with a win, defeating Army 42-22 at home in its first ever game at its new field on Quinnipiac's Mount Carmel campus.

The Bobcats were led offensively by Mikah Maples, who scored three tries in the first half, while 2016-17 Sorensen Award-Winner Ilona Maher scored three and set up three.

Fifth-year senior Tayler Schussler also scored as did senior Rebecca Haight. Quinnipiac has won seven of its last eight contests against the Black Knights, including last season's national semifinals and the national championship match in 2015.
