GRR: New England Wide Conference

Scores are coming in this Men's DII College weekend and some major ramifications are underway.

Maine defeated Vermont 27-20 in the NEWCRC. Led by 22 points from Shea Wagner, who scored three tries and added two conversions and a penalty, the Black Bears put themselves in excellent position to win the conference.

It's weird times in the NEWCRC.

After being touted quite heavily in these pages for its competitiveness top to bottom, the league has in fact split rather dramatically. The bottom half of the standings is now struggling and it's really a case of some teams going through some rebuilding at the same time that others are returning the majority of really good units.

Bumped over to D2 from Small College by NCR, the University of Maine wasn't sure about where they would fit in the NEWCRC order.

Turning heads this past week in Men's DII college rugby was University of Vermont, which dismissed a very capable UMass Lowell side 38-0.

No one doubts that the New England Wide Collegiate Rugby Conference is a difficult conference, so to win a game by that margin (the two teams tied in their match last year) is definitely worth a closer look.

As expected the New England Wide CRC is going to be very tight in Men's D2 college rugby.

While weather kiboshed Maine-Orono vs Norwich, the other games were played and were all very competitive.

Bentley pulled off a nicely-taken 31-10 win over Boston University and really, by NEWCRC standards, that's almost a blowout.
