Varisty Girls Rugby
Lady Knights to play for OFSAA bronze at Twin Elm Park today
By Fred Sherwin

The St. Peter Knights varsity girls rugby team will be competing for a bronze medal at the OFSAA AAA provincial championships at Twin Elm Park in Nepean later today.

It's not the medal the Knights were hoping to play for today, but it's a medal nonetheless and even a bronze medal is better than no medal at all.

The fourth-seeded Knights were relegated to the bronze medal game after suffering a 24-12 loss to the number one seed and defending champions, Oakville Traflagar Red Devils yesterday afternoon.

Their opponents in today's game will be the team from St. Roch Catholic Secondary School in Brampton which lost 26-12 to John F. Ross Collegiate in yesterday's other semi-final.

The Knights were undefeated heading into their game against Oakville, having won their first two games 31-10 and 10-7.

They opened the tournament with a win over Ursuline College from Chatham on Tuesday on tries by Grace Blundun, Sarah Pedlar, Sydney Weatherall, Emily Tippins and Kaitlyn Rea who was successful on three convert attempts. They then beat I.E. Weldon from Lindsay 10-7 on a pair of second half tries by Rea after trailing 7-0 at the half to advance to the semis.

The Knights were hoping to make it to the championship game for the second year in a row, but this year's bracket worked against them in setting up the semifinal showdown with Oakville.

Two years ago, the Knights won the consolation final after being knocked out of the championship bracket with a loss in the all-important second game.

Today's bronze medal game kicks off at 10:30 a.m.
