The senior rugby team defeated Rockridge 44-20 today to win their 4th straight Lower Mainland Championship. Collingwood will now enter the BC AA Championships as the #1 seed for the second straight year. They will face Rockridge for the third time this season in the AA Tier 1 semi-final that takes place next Wednesday at 2:00 in Abbotsford.
The Cavs had some shaky moments in today's match as a lack of discipline cost them dearly as they were penalized time and time again for off-side and rucking infractions. This gave Rockridge constant momentum. However, when the Cavs actually did get their hands on the ball, they looked good as the forwards and backs supported each other well.
Tries were scored by Kirk Fuller (2), Thomas Simon (2), Linus Hartner, Shervin Etemadahari and Lucas Okano. Graeme Neill added one penalty and two conversions. Harry Philpotts also kicked one conversion.
