Match 12: Delaware 17, Florida 10

The first afternoon match of the 2012 Collegiate Rugby Championships was certainly not lacking in physicality. With both Florida and Delaware refreshed from the morning sessions, the tough match in Pool B was intense from the start. In the end, Delaware picked up the hard-fought win with a 17-10 victory.

Florida opened the scoring with a Joshua Nicdao and Michael Breske tries putting the Gators up 10-0 five minutes in Florida and looked to be taking care of Delaware, but the Blue Hens battled back  with a Pat Goldring giving some momentum before the half. Patrick Mullarkey’s two scores in the second half were the difference.

Delaware will be back on the field in a couple of hours to wrap up the first afternoon mini-session. The Blue Hens will take on Maryland at 4:06 p.m. Florida will return to the pitch to face Dartmouth, who is off to a dominating start in defense of their 2011 championship. Kickoff is set for 4:35 p.m. after a mini-break this afternoon.
