SCOUTING THE RAMS
West Chester showed some inspired play in its home opener on the South Campus Rugby Pitch Saturday, but visiting Norwich outlasted the Golden Rams, 26-22. West Chester (1-4) opened up an early lead with a pair of tries. However, Norwich was too strong down the stretch to claim the victory. The Rams won their first match of the season 19-10 at Bowdoin College the week before.
