On a warm 23 September and after multiple hours of traffic, CUWRFC arrived to face off against Penn. Playing 12s was a new experience for all, but everyone approached it with the same intensity and energy as we always do. After a first try scored by Penn, it was quickly countered with one Emily Reed and the first half ended with 27 – 19 Penn. Columbia kept the fight up in the second half and the final score was 55 – 34 Penn. Players of the first half were Sierra Watkins who scored four tries, and Serena Cheng who had some amazing runs at fullback. Players of the second half were Zora Navarre and Kayla Regan, who both held it down in the backs.

Final Score: Penn 55, Columbia 34
