Win over Rutland

Teams:MIT vs Rutland
Played:09/18/2010 @ Rutland
Score: 22 - 7 MIT win

MIT made the drive up to Rutland, VT to beautiful weather and a really nice pitch. Both sides came out hard, with Rutland threatening early but MIT’s defense held its ground. After more hard, physical play MIT were able to put some points on the board via solid scrums and good back line play. MIT took advantage of some overlaps and opened up Rutland’s defense for three tries (two converted). A converted penalty kick on top of that made the score 22-0 in favor of MIT going into halftime.
Rutland came into the second half fired up and scored quickly. The rest of the half was marked by some rough play and penalties, and unfortunately got confrontational at times between both sides and the referee. No more scores were recorded in the half, and regrettably, with about 15 minutes left to play the referee called the match due to rough play and back chat. However, both teams left the field in good spirits and MIT were very well hosted by Rutland at the social.
