The women of AUWRFC showed up to play Towson last Saturday for their first playoff game. With a final score of 35-10, the team will now advance to play next weekend against Salisbury in a semifinal match.
Although the score records a victory, the AU team struggled to perform against Towson. At halftime, the score was 14-0 — a true wake-up call, as head coach Roly reminded the team, that the victory was not guaranteed. The second half brought some additional intensity, but the organizational play AU usually exploits just wasn’t solidified 100%.
Kickoff against Salisbury will be on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf, located at the top of the campus.
