2018-19_PM_Ins_970x90

Kutztown started day 1 with a strong win over Clemson (26–0) but failed to win another match, comfortably losing both other pool games. Delaware similarly started with an exciting come-from-behind win over Boston (12–10) but was outclassed in the last two matches, including a 51–0 loss to Lindenwood.

Kutztown had the first foray into opposition territory but yielded a scrum to Delaware. The Blue Hens failed to got out of their own half before the Golden Bears were back with ball in hand. Some stiff defense and a penalty soon saw Delaware with possession. At the halfway point of the first half, both teams struggled to gain much territory. That changed when Delaware’s Alexa Craig found space and got in for the opening score of the match. Paige Klein added the conversion for the 7–0 lead.

As the final minute of the opening half neared a close, Delaware threatened to add another. #7 on score. The pressure paid off with Bradley scoring her second try of the half and Klein again connecting on the conversion, giving Delaware a 14–0 lead at the break.

MeKayla McAdoo’s try two minutes into the second half made Kutztown’s task even harder, with a 19-0 deficit and only 4:15 to go. In the final minute, Kutztown’s hope of claiming a victory were certainly over, but the Golden Bears continued to play hard in trying to resist an attacking Delaware squad. In the end, it was Delaware 19, Kutztown 0.
