Scoring Trys were: Amber (1), Alyssa (3 Trys and 5 conversions), Mel (2 Trys and 1 conversion), Judit (1 Try and 1 conversion)
The final score UT Dallas Women 54, Rice 15 and the UT Dallas Woman of the Match - Mel.
This weekend, the UT Dallas Men take on Midwestern State University (MSU). This will be the second match of this season/year. In the first match, MSU came from behind to take the lead, but with a horrendous call by the referee, which nullified a possible come back by the boys in green and orange. But that is water under the bridge, now with the new year and a new commitment the lads plan on making a good turn out and avenge that earlier loss.
The match will be played at UT Dallas and kick off is scheduled for 2:00pm. The weather should be good and I think we're ready to play.
