Our Men's D2 college Player of the Week is Finlay Hutton.
Hutton played flyhalf and scrumhalf for University of Vermont. He's from Scotland, Edinburgh, in fact, but is actually an exchange student from the University of Glasgow. Apparently being in both cities is the linguistic equivalent of offsetting penalties in football—he doesn't have a really noticeable Scottish accent.
In one of the marquee Men's D2 games of the weekend, University of Vermont took a key step forward in their conference with a dramatic overtime victory over UMass-Lowell.
Norwich and UMass-Lowell are 4-0 in the New England Wide Conference, while Vermont and Coast Guard rebounded from tough losses to go to 3-1.
Norwich University, ranked #4 by GRR, put in an impressive performance in beating GRR #5 University of Vermont 42-6 Saturday.
Is it a three-team race in the NEWCRC?
We’re two weeks into the New England-Wide Conference, and three teams in the Tier 1 are undefeated. Hope is not lost for the rest of the teams, but they’ll need a little bit of help.
