GRR: Mount St. Mary's
For a new conference, the Chesapeake Collegiate has been a rousing success.
Few conferences can boast so many close games, and the conference itself is still hugely competitive, with five teams still in with a shot at a conference title.
Mount Saint Mary’s is still in first place in the new Chesapeake Collegiate Conference, but they better look over their shoulder, because Virginia Tech is coming.
The Mount handed Mary Washington a 32-10 defeat Saturday to move to 3-1 in the conference and 16 standings points.
The University of Mary Washington defeated Salisbury University in Fredericksburg, Va. Saturday in the 2nd Chesapeake Rugby Conference game for both teams.
UMW got out to a fast start with a try from flyhalf Terence McPhillips in the first few minutes. This began up a flurry of scoring from UMW as they posted 17 points in the first 15 minutes.
The new Chesapeake Conference looks to be exactly what teams wanted when they formed it - a very competitive competition for college teams that are close to each other and are motivated to play.
