Senior Boys Rugby
St. Peter senior boys rugby team remains undefeated
By Fred Sherwin

The St. Peter Knights mission to avenge their heartbreaking loss in last year’s senior boys high school rugby championhip continued on track this week with wins over the Nepean and Glebe Collegiate.

The win over the Nepean Knights, who beat them in last year’s final on a last minute try, was especially satisfying – one for the redemption aspect of it, and second because it was well earned. The game was as close as the 26-22 score would suggest.

Unless there’s a major upset in the first two rounds of the playoffs, the two teams will meet again in the city championship with a trip to OFSAA on the line.

If they do meet again in the final, St. Pete’s will do everything in their power to avoid suffering the same fate they suffered last year.

After scoring a try to take the lead with just over a minute to go in the game, the Knights suffered a brain cramp, allowing Nepean to move the ensuing kick deep into their end where the west end Knights took advantage of two blown calls by the referee to score the final game-winning try with only seconds remaining.

The improbable turn of events left the Knights and their coach LeeAnn Napiorkowski absolutely devastated.

The loss was especially pain-ful for the team’s graduating seniors. For this year’s returning players, the final has been marked on their calendars in red ink and in bold letters.

With one regular season game remaining against Cairine Wilson, the Knights should be able to complete the schedule undefeated and earn themselves homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

Elsewhere in high school sports, the Louis Riel Rebelles have started their defence of the senior girls AA championship with a 3-1-1 record. The loss and the tie were against the Cairine Wilson Wildcats who currently occupy first place with a 3-0-2 record. Both teams have one game remaining in the regular season.

In girls touch football the Beatrice-Desloges Bull-Dogs lead the Far East Conference with a perfect 4-0 record. The Colonel By Cougars are one game back at 3-1, and the defending champion St. Matthew Tigers are a game and a half back at 2-1.

The Lester B. Pearson Panthers are also a perfect 3-0, as are the Samuel Genest Lazers who they share the lead with in the East Conference.
