WEEK #4 RECAP
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Here’s how the Scribes Rugby weekend went down in Vancouver and Kelowna:
It was another great weekend for the Scribes Minis program, as they hosted teams from Ravens, Rowers and Meraloma at Trout Lake in East Vancouver for the second Sunday in a row.
The turnout of both new and returning Scribes minis players was strong, and the updated competition structure – focused on smaller but more frequent jamboree Sundays – seems to be benefiting all of the aforementioned clubs.
The Minis take a break this coming weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday, but return for a day of rugby in Stanley Park at Brockton Oval on October 15th.
The 2017 Fall schedule has offered no easy targets for the Scribes Men, and Saturday’s match in Kelowna proved no different.
Kelowna seemed to be running downhill in the second half, building up a comfortable lead over Scribes en-route to a 65-12 final score. Scribes supporters held out hope that the post-game boat race at the clubhouse would better match the visiting team’s strengths, but there too victory proved elusive.
The men have four training sessions at their disposal to regroup and get organized before their next match, which takes place on October 14th at SFU.
A big word of thanks needs to go out to Coach Marcus Treacy and the Scribes women’s team members. They jumped through hoops and rearranged weekend plans to accommodate the Surrey Beavers, but in the end Surrey did not have enough players to field a team, and the match was forfeited.
Scribes, however, will take the points, which bumps their record to two wins and a draw. They now sit in second place in the Division 2 standings.
