GLENDALE, Colo. - Abigail Williams scored all of Milwaukee Scylla's points in a suffocating, 16-15, victory against San Francisco Golden Gate in Sunday's USA Rugby Emirates Airline Women's Division II Club National Championship at Infinity Park.
Scoring two tries and successfully kicking two penalties in addition to a physical presence on both sides of the ball, Williams was named Most Valuable Player in the Final. Only three points were scored in the final 40 minutes as each team left it all out on the field of play.
"We've had a lot of adversity on the run up to get here and we've been pushed to the brink at times," Williams said after the match. "That helped us today. [San Francisco Golden Gate is] the toughest team we've played all year. We just had a little bit extra today but they were fantastic."
