Women's Premier League


WPL: By the Numbers



2             groundings for Glendale fullback Maddie Slaught and trys in total as Merlins pounded out the win in Portland over Oregon Sports Union, 46-14;  11 for Glendale 10, Hannah Stolba, on 1 try and 3 conversions;

3             touch downs for Atlanta inside center, Kaitlyn Broughton, and    Harlequins upended Twin City Amazons, 53-10, at  home.

3             too, for All Blues 13, Evan Hoese, as Berkeley topped Chicago North Shore, 36-29, in a barnburner of a derby; Chicago, playing catchup throughout the match and drawing within 7 on 3 separate occasions, were at a converted goal of All Blues in the 80th minute on a try by replacement front row, Bridget Kapinus, and its conversion by wing relief, Gabrielle Whittinghill, but time eclipsed the host return;

4             -try flyer, Sara Levy, counted a double in the opening 20 and had her hat trick by ’30 as New York RC knocked back D.C. Furies, 44-24, in the Big Apple; 17-5 for NY at the half;

Upcomes the weekend:

Sat, 9.8
Beantown (6) v (6)  Furies in Boston: winner cops second place on the table; this is the Match of Weekend; 

Glendale (6) v (14) Berkeley on the StoveTop at Infinity: just now All Blues are cruising along, besting itheir oppo by better than two converted scores-per-match; Merlins will have to contain the formidable Berkeley try-scoring apparatus that presents threat from every position, especially backrow lock Kedra Davis, inside center Evan Hoese and flyer Margaret Simpson;

Sun, 9.9
Chicago North Shore (2) v (6) San Diego Surfers in Chi-Town: North Shore are winless and seek redress on the weekend, while Surfers hungry for their second victory; rock ‘n roll on Lake Michigan’s coast;

Twin City Amazons (4) v (10) New York RC in Minnesota: travelers have earned the bonus point in their previous pair of games; host have yet to record victory; more of the same this? Not if Amazons can figure out how to shut down New York’s 47-points-per-match offense and that would be with a “tackle-and-turnover” match plan;
