Volunteers hold off Bulldogs

Tennessee 34, Georgia 20

Tennessee built a 29-3 halftime lead and then had to withstand a Bulldog push in the second half to claim the 34-20 victory over Georgia at the Tennessee Rugby Park on Saturday.

The Volunteers used a sold combination of pace wide and power up the middle to jump out early.  Again this week, Tennessee was faced with the adversity of some key injuries throughout the contest.

Tennessee Reserves took a decisive 38-0 victory in the second game.

Overall 46 players took the field for the Volunteers on Saturday - including 8 freshmen in the Varsity match and another 13 in the Reserve match.

After an open week this weekend, the Volunteers return to action against Ole Miss at Oxford, Mississippi on October 07. Additional rugby may be played that weekend of fall break but arrangements are incomplete.
