This Saturday it was another nice day for rugby, as the Scribes again played at Gordon Park, this week hosting Chilliwack. The Scribes rolled in with a lot of momentum after last week’s win, and it showed in the early stages of the game. Before even 5 minutes had elapsed, the Scribes had been awarded a penalty inside of Chilliwack’s 22-metre line – which Dan put through to put the Scribes on the board. Play carried on largely in Chilliwack’s end, and the Scribes had several strong attacking phases, ending with two tries in 5 minutes, both carried over by Ross. Not long after, SFU Dan continued the scoring after the Scribes won a huge attacking lineout – carrying the ball over the line and finishing between the posts.
Late in the first half, Chilliwack had a strong possession deep in Scribes territory, but our boys found a way to keep them out – and followed up the huge defensive stand with yet another try, this one carried over by Johnny. The first half ended with the Scribes up 31-0. Things settled down a bit for the Scribes in the second half – neither team could find a break, until the Scribes won a lineout around the 22 metre line in Chilliwack territory. The forwards drove on the ball, and Cole broke loose with the ball and carried it in. The forward pack contributed to another try in the second half – Chilliwack were awarded a scrum deep in their own territory, which our forwards successfully wheeled to win possession away. Winning the ensuing scrum, the ball found its way into Aussie Dan’s hands, and he carried it over for his second try in as many games.
When time expired, the Scribes found themselves winners by a score of 41 to nothing. The win streak stays alive – and now the Scribes must take on the Kats to try and extend it to three games.
