Dartmouth Victorious in Varsity Cup Opener

Big Green Move on to Final Round of 8 with Win Over Clemson

Hanover, NH – Saturday afternoon, the men in green took to the grass at the awe-inspiring Brophy Field for the first time since fall.  With the sun shining and a sizeable crowd on hand at the Corey Ford Rugby Clubhouse, the DRFC hosted Clemson in the first round of the Varsity Cup, the nation’s premier collegiate XVs tournament.  Knowing the Tigers to be a tough opponent, ranked 15th in the nation by RugbyMag and coming off two straight wins, Dartmouth went into the match looking to implement the systems they’d worked on in the past week’s training and to improve from their previous week’s performance against Harvard. The home team got off to a good start, getting on the board first, and didn’t look back on their way to a 59-24 victory.
