The Radcliffe rugby club was not at its best playing on a muddy Soldiers Field Friday.
But it did not matter. The ruggers were playing Yale.
Radcliffe blasted the Elis, 16-0, to close out its fall season with an 8-1 record.
"Yale wasn't really that good," Co-Captain Eliza Schwarz said, "so we didn't have to struggle that hard."
The Black and White lost only one game this fall, a 4-0 decision to Williams in overtime.
"We're really happy with the way we played," Schwarz said. "We want to get more people out this spring. We're losing a lot of people to graduation."
Radcliffe scored all 16 points in the first half. Schwarz got the ball rolling with a 15-yd. try.
The play began as a scrummage when eight-man Alexandra Williams picked up the ball. Williams got the ball out to scrum-half and Co-Captain Cherie Silvera.
Silvera passed to Schwarz, who coasted the final 15 meters for the score.
"Once we got going," Schwarz said, "everyone did a good job in supporing each other."
Schwarz also set up the second score with a pass to Williams.
Outside center Jennifer Scanlon and forward Karen Berman closed out the scoring.
The Black and White next sees action in the spring.
