UW vs Boise State- February 27, 2016

By UW Rugby Club, 03/01/16, 12:15PM PST


            On Saturday February 27, 2016 the University of Washington Huskies travelled 10 hours into Boise, ID to take on the Boise State Broncos. The game kicked off at 2:30pm MST on their new turf field directly adjacent to the Student Recreational Center.

            The Broncos came in ready to play converting two penalties early in the game. The Huskies responded quickly on the back of the loose-head prop Queveon "Q" Jenkins. Nate “Soggy-Bottoms” Lungstrom found the try-zone quickly after putting the Huskies up 12-6, with flyhalf Jack Stimson putting over one conversion. Boise was able to score one quick try before the half, seeing the Huskies leading 12-11 at halftime.

            After an intense halftime speech by Assistant Head-Coach Gabe Ho the Huskies came out at half with a chip on their shoulder, but Soggy was quick to eat said chip before the start of the second half. Queveon Jenkins started off the half hot putting in a quick hat trick that rivaled that of Todd Clever’s in the recent ARC 2016 match. Boise bounced back putting up a converted try and another penalty conversion. The match however was far from over seeing as UW’s Nick “Kiwi” Gadbaw trucked his way into the try zone with roughly 10 minutes left. Boise saw one more try and conversion near the end of the game giving the game a final score of 36-28 in favor of your Huskies.

            As for awards, Boise State announced that Nick “Kiwi” Gadbaw was their MVP, while UW Captain, Josh Rayburn, named Boise’s flyhalf Austin “Riff-Raff” Powers. The Huskies look are looking forward to next week in Bellingham where UW takes on Western Washington and are trying to improve to 6-0 in league.
