Junior Boys Rugby
On the first day of March, our Junior Boys Rugby team started off its first game of the season against Claremont Secondary School from Victoria. After some tough training in the rain and snow of second term on B field, it was great to get into a game.
Torren K, Privett ‘20, as fast as lighting, opened the scoring in the early going with two tries in the first period. Tries were also scored by Jack NG, Ellis ‘21, Will M, Whittall ‘20, Evan Lin Rogers ‘20. Callum BC, Privett ‘20 then made good on several kicks. A highlight of the third period was when our #8, Egor U, Rogers ‘20 picked up the ball from the back of a won scrum and galloped 80 yards with a couple of devastating straight arms. The Russian Rocket broke through the defensive line and made a huge run towards the try line.
Quinn P, Ellis ‘20 was a force on the defensive line: he made some good runs and stopped some big opponents who tried to break through our line. Evan L, Rogers ‘20 and Albert M, Privett ‘20 also made some crunching runs and tackles. Several Grade 9s who just joined rugby this term also did super well on their first game. Gavin OV, Rogers ‘21 just joined rugby this year: he was very impressive in his first official game.
On Tuesday, March 6 we will be hosting St. George’s on Gillespie field. The Vancouver powerhouse never fails to field a competitive team. See you on the pitch.
