Womens Cougars kick off 09-10 Season

WCR 27 CSU 5

Womens Cougars regroup for 2009-2010 Season.

Provo, UT - Welcome to the Cougar Rugby Blog. We begin by welcoming all the new girls who have decided that rugby may just be one of the most rewarding activity for them here at BYU. About 30 news girls showed up to first practice; only about 20 remain faithful. They are doing well.

We began season with a scrimmage with Utah Valley University on Wednesday, September 09, 2009 at 6pm in Orem, Utah. The Cougars won convincingly by 35-0. The cougar women did what they could to contain a new look UVU side. It was a good game to build on going into the season.

Then there was the long awaited showdown between #4 - WCR and #8 - Colorado State University, two highly ranked teams in the country on Sept 19, 2009. It was a cracker of a game as they call it down under. The game began with the two teams trying to establish good platforms to attack from. WCR led at the half 5-0 with try to fullback Rebecca Bunnell.

In the second half WCR managed to pull away with 4 more tries with Samantha Wright, Kristi Jackson, Star Bollinger and Rebecca Bunnell again finding the goal line with a good individual effort. WCR 27 CSU 3. It has been a good week and we look forward to the game against USU this Saturday September 26,2009 at 11am in Logan.
