Women's Premier League - 9.17


WPL: By the Numbers – 9.17


12           -nil early for DC Furies looking the business before Atlanta Harlequins unleashed an 8-try barrage, scoring the next 51 points in 51-12, 5-point victory; Quins 10, Corrine Heavner, put Atlanta in front 15-12 on a 3-pointer just shy of the half and visitors raced away from there; 1 double for Harlequins blindside flanker, Monique Compito, and 11 off the toe of Heavner on 4 conversions and the penalty;

3             the measure of separation after 80 as San Diego Surfers ran out to a 19-0 advantage by the 32nd minute in Oregon; Home team drew level in the next 10 minutes and 19 for the house by minute 43; Surfers touched down twice by ’61 for a 10-point lead and ORSU scored a converted try at the death to make the final 29-26 in favor the travelers; hat-trick for WaveRiders openside, Sam Pankey, and 1 tryple, too, for Oregon openside, Rachel Johnson;

7             -try Glendale pounded Chicago North Shore, 45-0, as fantastic flyer, Nichole Wannamaker, grounded 4 times and Merlins 10, Hannah Stolba, counted a personal haul of 15 on a touch down and 5 conversions;

4             lead reversals by the 45th minute meant lively action in the battle for supremacy of the Red Conference before Beantown pulled away and then held off New York for 33-30 victory in The Big Apple; 13 for Beantown 12, Kim       Rozier on 1 grounding and 4 conversions; NY out-tryed the Bostonians 6-4, but 0 conversions meant a dozen left on the deck by the New Yorkers kickers; trick question: when does 9=10? ans: when both Beantown engines, Stacey Bridges      and Clare Akauma, numbers 4 and 5, score trys, which they did... get it?



Upcomes the weekend:

Sat, 9.22
Atlanta Harlequins (12) v (16) Beantown Rugby: both can touch down the ball and put up the points; defense will win this one, the other Match of the Weekend!


Sun, 9.23
Twin City Amazons (9) v (6) D.C. Furies: D.C. won by a deuce in the nation’s capital to open their campaign and have struggled with containment since; homegirls are coming off a week’s rest after trouncing then-frontrunning New York; ‘Zons are tough at home where they’ve yet to lose this season; could very well be a bonus-point win if the Twin Cities offensive machine cranks;

Chicago North Shore (2) v (7) Oregon Sports Union: home team will like to bolster its defense, while ORSU will look to exploit any and all alignment lapses;

San Diego Surfers (16) v (14) Berkeley All Blues: travelers got the better San Diego, 17-10, in Northern California opening day last month; All Blues would like a similar result, but Surfers will be itching for payback... this will be   Match of Weekend!
