The Broncos picked Kaydee Valliere as their Man of the Match. The team players of the match were Mevla Calvo as the backs player and Diana Compos as the forward player. The Gaels have a bye on February 14th but have an away game February 21st against Sac State! Go Gaels!

March 8, 2014 | SMC v. UC Santa Cruz

The Gaels started off strong, holding back UC Santa Cruz for the first ten minutes of the game. It was very clear that our women’s rugby has improved on their defense. However, it wasn’t long until our rivals broke through our defense and scored. Hannah Upton and Sheila Knockum went in for the ruck, when Upton got a significant knee injury, causing her to get taken out of the game. Our two tries were scored by Haylee Peterson and Kiki Saunders! With ten minutes left in the first half, Peterson found a gap in UC Santa Cruz’s defense and scored the Gaels our first try. Saunders’s try was a beautiful break through as well, bumping our score to 14 SMC to 22 UC Santa Cruz. Both of the Gael’s conversions were made by Chanel Fargo. SMC had a lot of improvement and nice teamwork, but unfortunately the game resulted in a loss with a score of 14 to 57.

February 23, 2014 | SMC v. Fresno State

The women’s rugby team suffered a tough loss to Fresno State Sunday morning with a final score of 56-19.  A couple of early scores by Fresno put the Gaels down early in the first half.  A burst of momentum came late in the first half and would only trail by 15 going into half time with the score 27-12.  The second half began with a couple of early scores by Fresno that ultimately pull out of reach from the Gaels.  The Gaels travel to Humboldt State next Saturday

February 15, 2014 | SMC v. Santa Clara University

The Women's Rugby team had a tough loss this weekend against Santa Clara. Even with this loss they still fought valiantly dispite they were down one player.  Every play they worked as a team to push hard for the ball and broke through the Bronco's defense multiple times.  Hannah Upton scored the try with the team's support.
