A great year culminated in the BC rugby finals held at Burnaby Lake and saw the Abbotsford Division 1 women finish off an undefeated 2nd half of the season by beating Nanimo 52-17.
The men, had a back and forth game with rivals, Bayside.
Ultimately, Bayside had the final say and took the match 34-29.
Below is the match video of the mens game, and the game summary from bcrugby.com.
Women's Division 1 Final – Abbotsford 52 – 17 Nanaimo Hornets
Nanaimo weren’t ready to give in though and buoyed by a very vocal band of travelling supporters, they continued to battle hard right to the final whistle.
Men's Division 1 Final – Bayside Sharks 34 – 29 Abbotsford
“That was a real nail biter, being up with 10mins to go only to be pegged back to a five-point game was tough going” commented Spencer Thorpe, Bayside’s No.11 and playing in his third Club Finals weekend.
Bayside is creating a culture around the club that is bringing in more and more rugby players at all levels, so hopefully, we’ll have a few more results like this in years to come.”
Last week the Div 2 men went down to an experienced Bayside team, 34-9.
However, the men were unable to cash in on their opportunities and Bayside scored a few late tries to put the match out of reach for the Div.2 side that battled hard.
Semi final games tomorrow for both women and men’s division 1 teams.
Women get home field advantage and men will travel to Surrey.
The Division 2 men travel to White Rock to take on Bayside RFC at 1245.
A message from our fundraising coordinator, Beck Foreman:
The security volunteering is separate from Rockin' River this yer, as we have an opportunity to bartend in Merritt, and potentially make a significant amount of money for the club.
