On a muggy humid day, the Rutgers women's team ran out to an early lead and held off a sterling Vassar comeback to win 24-22 Saturday.

Rutgers sucked Vassar into a wide game the Brewers weren't prepared to play, and led 12-5 at halftime after falling behind 5-0..

In the second half the Vassar forwards tried to exert control. They scored three tries, including Margaret Kwateng's second, to one for Rutgers, but it wasn't enough as Vassar managed just one conversion.
