The Army Rugby team hosted Norwich University on Saturday, September 30th at the Anderson Rugby Complex for Army’s third game of the regular season. Army is annually Norwich’s biggest game of the regular season as they get extremely fired up about the chance to defeat the perennial national powerhouse. Norwich, a military school, is known for being a hard nose, disciplined team who can execute well according to their game plan. The day started out with the B side game at 1400 followed by the C side game and then finished with A side game at 1700.

A Side: 78-10
The A side wasted no time gaining the upper hand in the game against Norwich. Playing on the turf field at Anderson Rugby Complex, Army displayed their speed and excellent ability to use the field to their advantage. Being a wide field, Army is often able to outpace their opponents who are not used to the much faster pace on the turf. Army’s play on Saturday definitely highlighted their speed and pace in all aspects of the game.
The Army ruggers put 52 points on the scoreboard in the first half alone. Army finished the game with 78 points after subbing out several starters to allow younger players valuable A side playing time.
