On March 30, 2019 the Lady Mudturtles hosted Monmouth Renegades for thefinal league match of the year. The Renegades started off hot running a quickpick and go offense that had the Mudturtles on their back foot for much of thefirst half. Union ended the half down 34-0. The second half saw a change ofpace with some impact subs and tries by Captain Fullback Jordan Seubert and ferociousFlanker JT - Jess Teran. The second half effort was not enough to overcomeMonmouth"s substantial lead, and the Lady Mudturtles took their first loss ofthe spring season. The match was a learning experience! The team loves playing Monmouthand plans to link up with the Renegades for Can Ams this year, forming a fierceJersey Squad. Best of Luck to Monmouth in the Playoffs!
