In an amazing display of talent and skill, Dartmouth's rugby team won the inaugural Northeast Collegiate 7s Tournament hosted by the Northeast Academy on Sunday, May 7th.

Dartmouth kicked off against New England College in the tournament's final round to determine who would take home the trophy. Both teams played strong throughout the first half. Dartmouth was able to break through NEC's defenses to touch down under the post before making a conversion leaving Dartmouth ahead 7-0 at halftime.

50 Years of Bermuda Rugby Time Travel

I got a warm welcome on my March 16, 2017 arrival in Bermuda and a question, "is this your first time in Bermuda?" "No," I said, " I come here every 50 years."

I brought Penn Rugby here 50 years ago as team captain and coach. I returned this time with my wife Rosemarie this time as a Penn supporter. (Oliver kept himself busy running touch when ever they'd let him all weekend.)

Nostalgic about my trip 50 years ago.

Princeton 43 - Yale 27 ... An Ivy Warmup

Yale brought the cup to this year's match after winning in New Haven last year. The Rob Koranda Cup is awarded to the winner of the annual Princeton vs. Yale rugby match dating back to the spring of 2002. The score was not indicative of the game as Yale scored the last 3 trys and dominated the second half.

Yale to Defend the Rob Koranda Cup

Yale to Defend the 2008 Rob Koranda Cup

The Rob Koranda Cup will be on the line at Princeton this Saturday at 1pm at Princeton's home pitch West Windsor Fields. Princeton fully expects a huge challenge. Yale Rugby, under the leadership and coaching of Jan Pikul, has become a serious threat to both Dartmouth and Harvard for the upcoming Ivy crown.

The Rob Koranda Cup is awarded to the winner of the annual Princeton vs. Yale rugby match. Princeton vs. Yale rugby dates back to the beginnings of both Ivy League programs.

Beautiful Day 1 at the 2007 Ivies!

For a brief moment Saturday it looked like it was going to be a Dartmouth v. Harvard showdown in both the men's and the women's final of the 2007 Royall Lyme Ivy League Championships.

On the men's side it will be Harvard and Dartmouth --- AGAIN --- as Dartmouth makes their third trip to the finals in as many years. For the women though, the surprise of the day has to be 5th seed Brown. Brown out talented a well coached Princeton side 14-7 to move on to a second round game where they completely annihilated last year's Ivy Champion Radcliffe (Harvard) 42-nil.

What Can Brown Do For Us?

What Can Brown Do For Us?

If you were wondering who is the best women's team in the Ivies, wonder no more. Brown annihilated all in their path Saturday outscoring their opponents 145-0. They only played three matches!

The Cornell Women, expected to be tough for Brown, were the only team to make a game of it. But the lady bears from Cornell were unable to put points on the board, as the Brown shut them down and out, 15-nil.
