Charlotte Rips Eno In Women’s Rugby

Charlotte Rugby Club drilled Eno River women’s rugby 49-0 in Durham. Halftime was 17-0. Eno finished the fall season with a 4-1 record (2-1 in matrix matches).

Lauren Sheridan described the match as a hard fought against a team that has run up the score to 100+ against other league teams.

“Although it’s frustrating to lose a game by so much, this actually was an improvement for us compared to previous matches against Charlotte,” Sheridan told CSN. “Eno held our own on defense, made some very nice tackles against players much larger than ourselves, moved the ball down the line nicely, had some beautiful runs and set plays on offense, and worked hard to possess the ball in rucks. Our style of play is very positive, and it was nice to hear all the messages of encouragement and pride in our game from Eno players even as we played a team with a higher skill level and a decidedly more negative attitude toward the game.”

Eno heads into winter training and will be playing touch rugby on Sundays at 1p.m. at Campus Hills Park, Durham. They welcome new players to join and follow them on Face­book and Instagram for updates on practice times, locations and cancellations.

They’ll send a team to Savannah for March 10 St. Patrick’s Tourney. First matrix match is March 17 at home.
