The BU Women’s Rugby Football Club outscored the UMASS Women 75-5 on Sunday afternoon.
Two very early tries from the BU back line set the tone for the game. Centers Alex Hubelbank (SAR ’14) and Jordan Lavy (CAS ’12) were consistently switching and looping to find the gaps throughout the game, while Christina Vailas (COM ’12) and Kiera Vinson (CAS ’13) created amazing sideline plays. Vailas and Hublebank each put up 4 tries and Lavy added 2. Deanna Nash (CAS ’14) stepped in to fill some big shoes at flyhalf and was able to command the backs and control the game like a pro. Nash also contributed 10 points with 5 converted tries.
Captain, Abby Smigelski (CAS ’12) contributed yet another FORWARD TRY this week and was a strong presence on the field. In the scrums, Xa Hopkins (CAS ’13) had countless stolen balls and commanded a strong drive from the pack.
Overall, each player contributed great communication and vision on the field. The fan support at the game was also a factor in pumping up each player. There were many parents, friends, coaches and teammates in those stands cheering on BUWRFC. Thank you to everyone who could make it out!
Next week BU heads up the green line to face Boston College.
Keep on ruggin’ BU…
