Rowan kicked off their inaugural D1AA season with a dominant 36-12 win over in-state rivals, D1A Rutgers. Man of the Match, Justin Sangster, scored three tries in a rampaging display. Matt Rhodes and Ryan Hamblin also chipped in with tries of their own. Freshman sensation, John Dormann, converted four tries and kicked a penalty.
A big crowd of over 300 supporters were on hand to cheer on the Profs, including former Rowan Head Coach, Curt Gruber; alumni parents, Mr. Spanos and Mrs. Berger; and Rowan alums Andrew Simpson, Joe Schengreund, John Gerner, Nick Spanos and Eric Shubiak, among others.
The home crowd support was tremendous and greatly appreciated by the team.
