The Scribes Women scored early and often against Surrey, splashing down for three tries in the opening twenty minutes.
Whitney Paronish-Rowe led the way confidently with ball in hand, while Cat Power added points via the boot, including a beautiful drop-goal conversion attempt.
Abagail and I believe Ursula got tries as well in the later periods, as Scribes raced to a seven try to nil victory over the Beavers.
The win moves the team to three victories, one draw and one loss on the campaign, which comfortably puts them into second place in the BC Rugby Division 2 standings.
This coming Saturday the women have a bye.
It was an important crossroad in the men’s season, as Scribes battled United in Coquitlam.
Scribes were leading 12-7 just before half-time, courtesy of tries from Arthur Farini and Paddy O’Flaherty, when flanker Seb Bouzac suffered a serious hip injury as one of the United players landed awkwardly on him during a tackle.
United jumped ahead in the second half, but Scribes were able to rally for their fallen teammate, as Dadou Delachoux supplied a vital penalty goal late in the match to pull Scribes ahead 15-14. United were then penalized in the final seconds trying to defend a rolling maul, and Scribes were awarded a penalty try.
The final score was 22-14 in favor of Scribes, earning the side its first victory on the season. Scribes then proceeded back to their clubhouse to celebrate and to record messages of encouragement for Bouzac, who will be out indefinitely. Everyone at Scribes wishes Seb a full and speedy recovery.
The Scribes next take to the field on Saturday, October 28th, as they host Kamloops. Venue and kickoff time should be confirmed shortly.
