In those next ten minutes of the game, Rama Sisay scored on two tries and Emily Hannemann was able to get the CV score for both plays. Rama Sisay had 6 tries total in the game as she scored on all 6. Emily Hannemann was able to convert on each CV score.

Maine had got their first score in the 25th minute of the game, as Elaina DeRiso was able to get Maine 5 points. Maine’s offense struggled as the Hartford Hawks were able to play a very solid defense. Margaret Aydlett had 5 tries that were all good for Maine, but it was not enough for the win.

The next matchup for Hartford Women’s Rugby will be on Saturday, October 26, as they will travel to face Coast Guard. The women’s rugby team is looking to improve their record to 5-0, as they gear up for their matchup.
