The playoff matches for this weekend’s Women’s Premier League are set after the final weekend of action.
New York Rugby Club defeated Beantown 24-15 in the game that decided the playoff seedings for both. Tries by Carly Waters and Sarah Levy in the second half allowed New York to pull away and clinch 2nd in the Red Conference.
"The shift in the second half came when Jessie Ruiz supported for an offload and then assisted Sarah Levy's try," New York captain Jennifer Salomon told Jackie Finlan writing for USA Rugby. "She has been consistent, patient, and supportive all season and for us to see her step up at a crucial moment was incredible to see. The energy from that play set the tone for the rest of the match."
Both Glendale and San Diego won comfortably, and as a result, San Diego held onto 1st in the Blue, with Glendale taking 2nd.
