The Marist College Men won their first round NCR Playoff game defeating the U.S. Coast Guard Academy 32-31 and advanced to the Sweet 16 Round hosted at Reading, PA. The Red Foxes fell to Indiana University Pennsylvania (IUP) after leading at the half and scoring first in the second half. However, 5 cards of which 4 were against Marist in the space of 5 minutes left them at a serious disadvantage and the final score of 41-18 saw IUP advance.

The Division II National Collegiate Rugby Championship is highly competitive but the Marist men have taken the first step on the ladder.

Fairfield will play next weekend in Annapolis, MD against Providence College and if they win they will face either Temple University Women or the Colorado Mesa University Women for a slot in the Final 4. The other side of the draw pits the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Women against the Colorado School of Mines.

The Hofstra University Men, winners of the Tri-State Conference Central Division, advanced to the next NCR National playoff round with a victory over Springfield College Men 26-15 yesterday. The runner-up in the Tri-State Central Conference, SUNY-Maritime College Men will play in the NCR Bowl Series
