HANOVER, N.H. – A forfeit by No. 10 Brown automatically awarded the win to the No. 1 Dartmouth women’s rugby team ahead of the game that was scheduled to close the regular season on Saturday.
The Big Green, which maintained the top spot in the NIRA coaches’ poll for the second week in a row, improved to 5-0 following the forfeit and a 39-10 victory over Ivy Rugby rival Harvard on Saturday.
Next up for Dartmouth will be the Ivy Championship, which will take place next Saturday, Oct. 28. Scheduled to take place at Princeton, the location has been moved to Brophy Field in Hanover.
