GRR: NIRA Women
While the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) getting into its second week, we're also seeing several women's D1 collegiate teams get on the field as well.
Brown University, NIRA Tier II runners-up in 2019, made the move to DI this season and almost beat 2019 Tier I runners-up West Point.
Kate Molloy's try and Macy McKenzie's conversion brought Brown back from a 19-12 deficit to lock the game at 19-19 with 15 minutes to go. Neither team was able to score after that, and they went to overtime.
The Quinnipiac Bobcats defeated Sacred Heart and Harvard slammed Mount St. Mary's as both teams opened their NIRA account with victories.
This week's NIRA and D1 women's collegiate action got underway early with Dartmouth handing Long Island a convincing loss.
