Match 17: Delaware 38, Maryland 14

While Penn State and Temple failed to grab the home field advantage, Delaware has become the hometown team in the Collegiate Rugby Championships. Delaware advanced to the championship round with a 38-14 victory against Maryland, improving to 2-1.

Delaware had to come from behind early on after Maryland jumped in front with a try and conversion, but the Blue Hens shut out Maryland in the second half to pull away with a solid victory. The Terps looked to take a lead in to the half but Delaware’s John Vannoy picked up a try and Christopher Mattina picked up a pair of conversions to pull ahead at the break.

Delaware will advance to the championship bracket on Sunday, owning a head-to-head tiebreaker with Florida. The Blue Hens will open up the championship bracket against LIFE, who was 3-0 on Saturday in Pool A. Maryland will move on to the challenger bracket on Sunday, and will take on Penn State in the first round.
