HANOVER — The top-seeded and undefeated Dartmouth College women’s rugby team routed Brown in Saturday’s National Intercollegiate Rugby Association semifinal, 56-5, to advance to next weekend’s championship against Army.

The match was never in doubt as Big Green (8-0) built a 34-0 lead at the half on the strength of two tries each by Lilly Durbin and Kristin Bitter.

Sophie Ragg opened the scoring at 4:36 with Bitter getting her first try seven minutes later. Dartmouth scored four more tries in the span of 10 minutes, with Ale Ada at 20:24 followed by Durbin’s first try at 25 minutes. Bitter and Durbin closed out the first half scoring.

The Big Green and the Black Knights will meet for the first time in the NIRA championship. Army lost to Harvard in the 2019-20 championship but got a measure of redemption by upsetting the second seeded Crimson 25-17 in the other semifinal match on Saturday.
