For the last league game of the season, Stanford Women’s Rugby headed up North to face Chico State. It was a tough game that saw many tries scored by both teams. However, Stanford dominated the first half scoring six tries off players Amelia Villines, Hilary Streeter, Aly Gleason, and Molly Kinsella. Although the Chico offense threatened Stanford many times in the first half, Stanford held their ground, and the score at half time was 36-0.
The second half proved to be more challenging as Chico rallied and scored 2 quick tries. However, Stanford soon regained their composure and replied with tries of their own. Lock Molly Kinsella, center Aly Gleason, and hooker Ellen Danford added another 3 tries to the tally. Chico was also able to score two more tries in the half. Aly Gleason converted 6 tries and the final score was 57-22.
With this victory, Stanford remains undefeated in the Pacific Mountain North Conference. Stanford gets a bye in the league playoffs, and we look forward to playing in the Sweet 16s!
