Endicott College is the reigning conference champion and advanced to last year’s NCR Small College 15s playoffs. The Gulls beat Middlebury College in the Round of 16 before falling to eventual finalist SUNY Cortland in the quarterfinals. On Saturday, Endicott traveled two hours north from Massachusetts to New Hampshire and banked the bonus-point win in the 22-12 effort. Seniors Kylie Breen, Elektra Cheney and Cassidy McElhinney, and sophomore Tess Merrill scored the tries. Cheney kicked a conversion for seven points on the day.

Victoria McDuffee and Hannah Pasquerello scored the tries for Plymouth State, and Isabelle Lord added the conversion.

Salve Regina also hit the road to open up its league season and opened up against UMaine Farmington. Allie Houle accounted for 22 of the team’s 52 points on two tries and six conversions, while Emily Turcotte also added a pair of tries. Rebecca Conti, Olivia Maxwell, Jazly Alcantana and Gracen Barter scored one try apiece for Salve. Ali Banks accounted for all of Farmington’s points, scoring three tries and a conversion for 17 points.

This weekend, Salve Regina hosts UMass Dartmouth, and UMaine Farmington heads to Wentworth Institute of Technology. On Oct. 1, the Gulls host Salve Regina in an always hotly anticipated match.
