Union County Women vs. Fairfield Yankees September 11, 2021

Posted on 9/14/2021 10:54:15 AM by Lera Skoldpadda |   Return To Blog

Man, does it feel good to be back! And what a start to the season did the Union County Women's Rugby team have. With the 20th anniversary of September 11th, we started the game with a moment of silence for our fallen heroes and paid tribute to all the lives that were taken far too soon. We will never forget.

Several players with prior experience made their Mudturtle Debuts: Jordyn Marlin (Lafayette College), Erin Theriot (Baton Rouge Rugby Club), Kim Harp (Oregon State), Kate Spaschak (MSU), Serena Valente (Monmouth) and Anlaika Taylor (SUNY Oneonta). We also saw brand new players to the game as well! Elizabeth Sandford (first 15s game, played with us for Summer 7s), Patty Morel, and Kerowyn Smith.

This game Union County came out hot from the start with fullback Jordyn Marlin (#15) scoring not one, not two, but THREE tries. It seems 3 was our magic number; our new Center combo was also lethal with Elizabeth Sandford (#12) scoring 3 tries which Mercedez Roper (#13) had to match (and did!) and scored 3 tries herself. We also saw one try from the following players: Alyssa DeSordi (#14) Abby Holmes (#1), and Katie Duca (#6). Tiff Gregory was 6/12 on her conversions making a beautiful corner kick for one of them. Fairfield was able to punch in two tries as well converting on one of their conversions. Final score was 72-12 with Jordyn Marlin winning Woman of the Match (Fairfield also noted she was an unstoppable force and nominated her as well) and Elizabeth Sandford winning our Defensive Ninja Turtle award.

Union is looking forward to their 2 PM away match vs. Long Island. LET'S RAISE SOME SHELL!!!
