Yale finished second in the Tier 2 regular season while Columbia finished third. The winner will play against the Tier 2 #1 seed Cornell next Saturday. Both Yale and Columbia compete in Tier 2 of the Ivy Rugby Conference Women's Division.
The rain came down hard as the HRFC arrived at Princeton in an Ivy Rugby Conference 3rd Place battle. In the end, Harvard scored four trys to Princeton's one as the Crimson got their bonus point and continue to play well in the Ivies.
Strong cross winds and wet field conditions made of a forward’s game as scrums ensued quickly after kickoff. Thanks to some great kicking by Harvard's vice-captain, Robbie Waddilove, Harvard played most of the first half running crash balls inside the Princeton 22.
