Hanover, New Hampshire
October 9, 2010

In a match that pitted an injured and short handed Brown squad against what is clearly the Ivy League’s best team, the visitors gave up four quick scores in the first 10 minutes and, then, totally collapsed, losing by the unbelievable margin of 107-5. Left wing Dow Travers’12 scored Brown’s only points on as try in the 76th minute of play.

The coaches and yours truly were just unwilling to put this score in print until after our 50th Anniversary weekend. Brown, in the past decade, has had some big losses to some of New England’s powerhouse teams but nothing can match this margin of defeat.

With so many players injured and in and out of training since pre-season, we have been patching the squad together all season. This match was the “perfect storm” of missing and injured players and it couldn’t have come against a better team. The only bright light is that we look to be moving toward full strength over the upcoming last two weekends of the season.
