Maine Cup Winners 2015

Game of the Day: Bowdoin vs. Colby

A variety of teams played in the Maine College Rugby Championship, also known as the Maine Cup. Bowdoin took first place in the tournament and had a particularly fierce match against Colby, with a 33-12 final tally.

In the first half, Colby dominated in terms of possession and territory, led by All-American Jade Enright. Eventually two of Bowdoin’s wingers put trys on the board, Enright followed with another try but then Bowdoin kept the points coming. By the second half Bowdoin was ahead and was able to maintain the lead until the end of the game.

Rather than having just one star player, Bowdoin put points on the board with many teammates: Juliette Dankens, Charlotte Kleiman, Cristina Lima and Kendall Schutzer. Bowdoin’s team was missing 11 of their fall teammates with many studying abroad and participating in the spring season of track and field. Therefore its team is currently made up of first year players and sophomores.

MaryBeth Matthews, the Head Coach of Women’s Rugby at Bowdoin College, said, “The spring season for me is always about player development and safety; all team members, but especially the newer ones need to practice not just their ball skills but more importantly, their game awareness, footwork and body positioning for safe contact.  With a mixture of 7s and 15s in the short spring season we have in New England, we look to maximize their participation in rugby for optimal results.”

Players selected to the spring season’s Maine All-Tournament team were Vianney Gomezgil Yaspik at #1/prop, Emily Athanas-Linden at #9/scrumhalf, Dankens at #11/left wing, Katie Doherty at #13/outside center, and senior Kleiman at #14/right wing.
