Lindenwood-Belleville added another victory to what is likely the program's final season with a fairly comprehensive 39-7 victory over Arkansas.
Penn State backed up its close win over Notre Dame College last week with a nifty little shutout of Mary Washington.
It was a hard-nosed effort by UMW, a team that has just joined the Rugby East. But the Mothers were on defense way too much and Penn State’s work in the breakdown mean Mary Washington’s attacking movements weren’t easily sustained.
Navy held off a determined Kutztown University team 26-22 Saturday in a DIA inter-conference meeting.
Given that both teams were ranked in the top 10 by both Goff Rugby Report and D1A Rugby overall, both with Navy slightly ahead, this was expected to be a close one. Despite losing, Kutztown did much to justify its high ranking.
