The other two NERFU college clubs in the play-off hunt this weekend both suffered devastating last minute losses. In the womenâs NSCRO Northeast Regionals the University of New England (UNE) lost in overtime to the University of New Haven, 29-22. The University of Maine- Orono (UMO) men also suffered a similar fate against Plattsburgh State in a NSCRO Champions Cup Qualifier. The U of Maine men had fallen behind 14-0 early but then battled back over the course of the match to take a 17-14 lead, unfortunately Plattsburgh scored again as time expired to win 19-17.
We are proud of how UNE and UMO battled to the end and never gave up and we congratulate both clubs on their seasons and play-off runs. We also wish Salem State the best of luck in the next round of play-offs.
