Penn State claims Women's Collegiate National Championship over Stanford

Stanford versus Penn State.

Sounds like a good game no matter which sport it is, or which way you slice it.

On a gusty Saturday at Steuber Rugby Stadium on the Stanford University campus, the Penn State women's rugby team came an nearly dominated perennial powerhouse and home team Stanford.  They were overpowering in the rucks, strong outside running in space, and tough in the scrums.  Just as you would expect in a championship game, Stanford refused to accept the ensuing loss by fighting each second until the final whistle.

Here are some pictures of the ladies, all wearing our custom Everest Jersey in our signature Women's Fit.   Longer cut, wider in the hips with shorter sleeves and a little extra room in the chest.   It provides the extra comfort and performance not found in a traditional men's jersey.

Stanford University Women's Rugby with their eye on the flag and their mind on the prize.

Following the D1A Rugby tradition, there were members of the US Armed Forces on hand.
Early on, Penn State established strong rucks & mauls.   Securing the ball with depth in the rucks & mauls, providing their Scrumhalf with clean ball.
Clean balls equalled open space for their backs out wide. 
The Penn State lineouts kept Stanford guessing at times.
With the wind blowing at their backs on their home field, Stanford's efforts showed the crowd the game was nowhere near won.
Agile around the pitch, the speedy Cardinals kept their attack moving. 
The contested every ruck. 
Even as the clock approached full time, the crowd was enthralled by the game on the pitch.
With the wealth and experience of the Stanford squad, anything is possible. 
 Games can change with a single scrum.
But unfortunately for Stanford a very skilled and experienced Penn State squashed any hopes of a comeback by controlling the ball every chance they had.
Meet your 2014 Women's Collegiate National Champions.
