Coyotes Open With Inter Squad Scrimmage

The USD Women's Rugby Team started their Fall season today. With a hand full of vets unavailable and a lot of rookies not able to play it was impressive that the Coyotes were able to put out two full squads for their inter squad scrimmage. The day started with a scrum session for the rookie forwards while the new backs worked on re-alignment skills.

Squads were mixed with vets taking key positions on both teams and rookies filling in the blanks. With competitive scrums and better than average lineouts the set pieces looked very good. The backs were able to move the ball out to the wings and there were several good breaks by both sides. The game was played end to end but the white squad benefited from some breakaways and ran out 17-0 winners.

The Coyotes play in the great Plains League and next Saturday they open the league season at home against the Creighton Women Bluejays.
