This past weekend, with playoffs and possible promotion to Tier 2 in mind, Babson took on their friends from MIT in cool and damp conditions. A slight mist fell for much of the first half, but that didn't slow Babson in the slightest, scoring 2 minutes into the match and never looking back.
The entire Babson roster was called upon in this effort, with strong runs and crushing tackles from the forwards leading to plenty of space for their backs to work. Of the 16 tries scored by the Beavers, 14 were converted, in large part due to precise goal kicking from 3 different Babson players.
MIT fought hard throughout the entire game, and scored unconverted tries in each half. Despite the lopsided score, the club from Cambridge never gave up, playing tough down to the final whistle.
Next weekend Babson hosts NEWCRC newcomer, Williams College with a 12pm kickoff at Harrington Field.
