Great End To A Not So Great Season

With tries by Darla Brandt (3), Sarah Permann and Tracy Elsen and one conversion by Lindsey Lefkow the Coyotes ended the season with a convincing 27-7 win against the Augustana Women. The highlight of the day was certainly the remarkable try by Permann who took a pass off a ruck in the USD half, threw an outrageous dummy pass that confused the defenders, shot through the gap and then pinned her ears back to go fifty yards to the goal line. The crowd went wild.

It was a great end to a tough season for the USD Women's Rugby Club who struggled through a series of cancelled games that certainly negatively impacted the team. The good news is that the core of the team will be returning and with the addition of a new group of rookies the team will be in very good shape in the fall.
