It’s the last weekend of rugby before the Winter break and what a way to finish the year with all 3 adult teams playing at home (Winona Park this weekend)
As the rain starts to subside we are anticipating a great turnout on the sidelines as well as the One Pub event following the games.
Game reports from last weekend:
An atmospheric river wasn’t enough to stop our club last weekend. The women took on SFU for a soggy, high intensity match. The Scribes side was bolstered by Reba Row and Didi Dufresne, two seasoned vets and alumni captains who laced up their boots to support the team. Some solid defensive play was put in by Becca McGovern and Emer Casey and there was excellent fixture work by all the forwards. Unfortunately SFU took the game but the Scribes women’s side fought hard until the final whistle. Special shout out to our players of the match Becca McGovern and Elyce!
The Scribes 1st men’s team dropped again at SFU away, as the rain drove down the Scribes drove on. Kicking off strong and maintaining a solid presence throughout both halves the team were able to keep SFU pressed up, only conceding 1 try in the final 5 minutes. All in all SFU brought a good match but ultimately got schooled.
30 guys from East of Vancouver (aka Burnaby) rolled into East Vancouver expecting to put a big number on the developing Scribes Mens 2nd team. Support was still coming from the Hill, so we started with 12 a side, as the visitors refused to give up any subs. The rain poured and the Scribes dug deep & not just in the mud. Despite bringing nearly 3x the fire power Scribes held the line and managed to grab a final bonus point.
