GRR: Stanford Women
Victoria Folayan emerged onto the American rugby scene as a 20-year-old at Stanford, where she was a huge part of the Crimson's two national championships.
Stanford found the redemption it was looking for from its last match against UC Davis by beating Cal by over 40 points Saturday.
In an unexpected turn of events, the University of California, Davis soundly defeated Stanford University 46-19 this past Saturday.
Stanford, a DI Elite team, used to be a group that moved ball wide quickly to break the gain line and use the advantage to score flashy tries - but that didn't happen this time around.
Stanford went 6-0 during the regular season, but it wasn’t the unopposed run to the playoffs as it’s been in other years. This weekend, during the Pacific Mountain Rugby Conference post-season, the DI field was able to judge the relative strength of the perennial national finalist.
(submitted by Stanford Rugby) Stanford defeated a fast, physical, and athletic UC Davis for the second time this season, extending their Pacific Mountain Conference (PMC) West record to 4-0. In the first encounter, Stanford staged a late come-back to overcome the Aggies.
