Challenger Final: Florida 20, Maryland 14

Florida had a rough going in pool play, but they managed to beat Maryland in their first match of the weekend. Perhaps fittingly, the Gators wrapped up their weekend with another victory against the Terps. In a rematch of Saturday’s game, Florida and Maryland met in the Challenger Final, playing solely for pride at this point. Florida took the challenger’s final, 20-14.

Maryland’s Matthew Quigley opened the scoring with an early try and a conversion gave the Terps a quick 7-0 lead in the first minute. But Florida’s Joshua Nicdao put the Gators on the board in the third and seventh minutes with a try to take  a lead in to the half. Michael Breske’s try in the tenth minute extended the Florida lead to 15-7 in the second half. Maryland’s Karl Rempe dashed down the left sideline for a try late in the half for the final score of the match.
