To kick off the season, UMWRFC drove down to Columbus last weekend to take on the Buckeyes. The girls were hopeful after training hard in the previous weeks and felt prepared after having a few scrimmages against Davenport and Central Michigan. However, UMWRFC’s defense wasn’t able to hold up against the fast moving ball out wide to the OSU backs. Michigan kept up the battle, scoring two tries throughout the game, but weren’t able to stop the Buckeyes, with a final score of 50-14. This past week, the girls have been working a lot on improving their defense structure, tackling techniques, and rucking intensity. UMWRFC looks forward to going down to Indiana tomorrow to take them on! Wish us luck and follow us on Twitter for live game updates!
