GRR: Central Washington University
A high-rankings game lived up to its billing Saturday night as #1 (GRR rankings) Lindenwood took on #4 Central Washington.
In the only major women's college rugby game of the weekend, the Central Washington University Wildcats improved to 3-0 with a 26-8 defeat of BYU in Provo.
It was a snow-covered field in Provo that welcomed the teams this morning, but BYU got going shoveling the snow off and they played the game.
The quote from Ernest Hemmingway's The Sun Also Rises about how Mke Campbell went bankrupt—"Gradually, then suddenly"—is kind of how, in a more positive fashion, we will see college rugby come back.
All eyes are on the campus of Lindenwood University this weekend as the #1-ranked Lions host two collegiate teams of note.
New program Marian University will visit St. Charles to make the team’s first official game as a new varsity program. This won’t be easy as Marian is just getting it all put together and while a talented side, will have a tough job of it against Lindenwood.
It’s round 2 for Lindenwood vs Life in the Women’s D1 Elite this week, while the Central Washington Wildcats try to take down the Antelopes of Grand Canyon.
Lindenwood rode a pretty snappy final 30 minutes to put away Life in St. Charles, Mo. February 20, but this return engagement in Marrietta, Ga. promises to be a tighter affair.
