MCRC B-Side Defeats Norwich University's B-Side

Article By: Levik Khodaverdy

On April 9, 2015 the MCRC Developmental 15s Side defeated Norwich University's Developmental Side 20-5. The game was played on the artificial turf at Norwich's football stadium. The weather was dreadful, with the temperature sitting just over freezing for most of the game. The MCRC scored quickly in the first half off of a 5-meter scrum. But the majority of the rest of the first half was spent defending their own half of the field. The Killer B's were able to keep them out of the try zone and survived through the first half, but eventually let up Norwich's lone try in the second half. The B's responded with a vengeance and dominated the scrums and the opposing forward pack, scoring 3 more times before time was called, largely resulting from aggressive and efficient forward play.
