RESULTS: EPRU Women's Collegiate Championships

Delaware and Temple win

The University of Delaware defeated West Chester 6-3 to win the Eastern Penn women's DI college final,

Both teams struggled to get any continuity and was mostly a kicking game - from the hand and from the kicking tee. A series of frustrating restarts saw many scrums near the tryline for both teams. In the end, Delaware won because their counter-attack was a little bit better than West Chester's. Flankers Mary Boccino (West Chester) Colleen Valiero (Delaware) were the best on the day.

In the DI consolation match Princeton won fairly comfortably over an injury-hit Shippensburg. Delaware, West Chester and Princeton move on to the Mid-Atlantic playoffs in the spring.

Temple just squeaked by LaSalle to win the Eastern Penn women's DII college playoffs, winning the league final 22-20. Both teams will move on to the MARFU playoffs, as wil York, which took third.
