2/28 - U.C. knocks off the snow at Clemson
The Bearcats traveled hundreds of miles to play 15th ranked Clemson Tigers for their first match of the year. Having only practiced once outside this year, it was an enormous ask of the club to knock off the Tigers. The match started out with UC reacquainting themselves with the dimensions of a real rugby field. After opening kickoff the Bearcats gained some territory on a 8 phase drive, Clemson was able to turn the ball over, retain possession for a few phases and then spin it wide for a try. UC quickly got a taste of Clemson game plan. Pound it up and spin it wide. It was not to be for the Bearcats, and Clemson wound up with 46 to only 10 for the Bearcats. While a large differential on the board, the team knew they competed. With a few more matches under their belt and some injured players back in the starting line-up, UC believes they can win against a Clemson caliber team.
10/25 - U.C. Finishes Season With a Tough Match Against Bowling Green
The University of Cincinnati finished its season with a battle against the team to beat in the MAC, Bowling Green. Even though the scoreboard may show a loss, the team gave this juggernaut team a run for the money. Bowling Green may have expected an easy win from discouraged Bearcats, considering UC's loss to Miami in the previous week knocked them out of the running on the playoffs. Unconcerned with MAC standings,however, UC chose to play for pride, putting up 24 points against Bowling Green's 42. The game was close at times, with a physical battle demonstrating that UC is still a threat in the MAC, and should not be overlooked in the seasons to come.
10/11 - UC WINS TWO IN A ROW
After 2 losses to Dayton and Western Michigan, the UC Men's Rugby Team rallied to beat Ohio University, followed by a high scoring match against the University of Lousville. UC Shined in the second-half of the Louisville match, scoring 55 points to their 17. Encouraged by this decisive win, UC is gearing up for a match against Miami University. A win next week could still put UC in the running for the second spot in the playoffs.
