In what is almost certainly a playoff preview, Harvard and Army clash at the Anderson Rugby Complex in West Point in NIRA action this weekend.
This is the final league game for both teams, and a chance to set the tone for what promises to be a hugely competitive playoff for the women's NCAA varsity DI competition.
It was a runaway and then it wasn’t, but Dartmouth held off Harvard 45-31 in the clash of two undefeated NIRA teams, setting up a potentially thrillling clash in the final in a few weeks’ time.
Dartmouth and Harvard both won big to set themselves up for a highly-anticipated clash in two weeks, a clash that could well be a NIRA DI final preview.
Harvard got four tries from freshman PK Vincze and two from Sabrina Kim, who continues a four-game scoring streak.
Two games headline the women's slate of college games this weekend.
Harvard gets a stern test and then a week off in the Women’s National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) league, and that’s good timing as the Crimson prepares to face Dartmouth October 23.
For the defending NIRA champion Crimson (they won it all in 2019 and there was no NIRA season in 2020), this is exactly what they want as they think about another championship.
