    by Tris Wykes September 2015

    The women's college rugby scene is changing almost by the month, and that trend was evident Sunday when Dartmouth hosted Pennsylvania during the Big Green's inaugural varsity match. The hosts' 77-5 victory at Brophy Field came during what was essentially an exhibition, although it will count in conference standings. The Ivy League only has three varsity teams at the moment -- Harvard and Brown being the others -- and requires five before it will sanction the sport. The Quakers, a club team competing with one fewer player than the traditional 15, couldn't cope with Dartmouth's ball movement or aggressive runs upfield. Five players recorded five-point tries early on as the hosts built a 29-0 lead midway through the first half. Following Penn's only try of the day, the home team added another 19 points to head into the intermission with a 48-5 lead.
