Stripes win first scrimmage at Top 60 Camp

GREELEY, Colo. -- Stripes opened the Top 60 camp and scrimmages in dominant fashion, defeating Stars 34-3. Just a day after arriving at the University of Northern Colorado, the more experienced Stripes squad utilized its abilities in wearing down the Stars to claim the first match of the series.

Stripes fullback Meya Bizer made her name known, having accounted for 14 of her team’s points on the day.

In total, six tries would be run across for Stripes, whom dominated the contest from the opening whistle. Winger Ashley Kmiecik initiated the scoring with a try just minutes into the match.

Despite a quick response from Stars inside center Aly Gleason, the penalty goal was the only score Stripes conceded all match.

Defense was the name of the game in the first half. After allowing quick scores, both teams became stringent on the defensive side of the ball, bending at points, but standing firm when it was needed.

Despite the work rate of Stars, Stripes was able to capitalize late in the half with two tries. Bizer dotted down with minutes remaining, while lock Sharon Blaney scored on the final play of the half for a 17-3 Stripes lead at the break.

The momentum taken into halftime by Stripes proved to be too much for the Stars to overcome in the ensuing half. Before the game was out, an additional three tries would be posted on the scoreboard in favor of Stripes.

Shaina Turley scored first and was followed by fellow back-row player Ashley Kingzett, before Bizer notched her second try of the day.

Bizer was able to convert on both of her scores to account for the 34-3 final score.

The next scrimmage is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22, at 2 P.M. MT.
