GRR: Mary Washington
Mary Washington defeated Belmont Abbey 36-11 Saturday in a non-conference early-season warmup for both.
Mary Washington is one of those teams that plays a fall league schedule but has looked for more 15s matches in the spring, too, and Saturday the Mothers defeated the University of Guelph out of Ontario, Canada in a good contest for both teams.
Mount St. Mary's defeated Mary Washington in a non--league spring game that is part of a small trend toward playing more 15s after the New Year for fall-centric programs.
Both college teams have voiced a desire to keep 15s front and center event after the fall, citing the desire to keep more players involved, and also to help more of the players develop their 15s skills.
In an extremely tense match University of Mary Washington got the preseason test they needed beating the Welsh Touring Side REME.
