Castleton Women’s Rugby faced their second away game of the season and fourth consecutive loss, as they took on the Sacred Heart Pioneers of Fairfield, CT with a final score of 56-0 on Sunday, September 25th.
The Pioneers dominated offensively, shutting out the Spartans in the first half with Sacred Heart executing a strong offensive attack and playing most of the game on Castleton’s end of the pitch.
The Spartans defense was no match for the Pioneers who scored 29 consecutive points with a combination of tries from sophomore second row Samantha King, junior scrumhalf Emily Mignoni, junior inside-Center Charlotte Tallman, who would score back-to-back trys, and junior hooker Sarah Rodzevick. Freshman full back Kaylee Hale would go 2-5 on conversion kicks.
At the start of the second half, the Spartans were still unable to gain the ball offensively and the Pioneers continued to put on the pressure. Marissa Yost would score the first try of the second half at the 29:40 marker and the team continued to show no signs of stopping continuing to score and putting another consecutive 27 points on the boards to finish the game 56-0.
The Spartans will continue their season traveling to University of New England on Friday, September 30th with a game start at 6:00pm
