The Wisconsin Women’s RFC opened their Midwest Division I league season with a tough 46-14 loss to Chicago North Shore this past Saturday on the road.
After traveling south to Lemont, Ill., Wisconsin’s much-anticipated return to Division I play saw the women in red rack up two tries and two conversions against North Shore.
Assistant Backs Captain and Center Jackie Limberg touched down both tries for Wisconsin, including one with assists from Wisconsin’s two youngest players, Katie Schott and Jackie Neubert.
Forwards Captain Katie “Ber” Rouse and No. 8 Mary Hanks both slotted a conversion a piece to round out the scoring.
Wisconsin looks ahead to this Saturday’s home game against the Chicago Women at Madison’s Crossroads Rugby Field. Kickoff is 11 a.m.
The Chicago Women suffered a close 16-8 loss to league opponent Detroit on Saturday, so this weekend’s matches will prove key in determining playoff runs into October’s regional competition with the West Region’s top teams.
