Knights settle for bronze at OFSAA AAA tournament
By Fred Sherwin
St. Peter Knights varsity girls rugby team ended their
season by winning the bronze medal at the OFSAA provincial
AAA championships at Twin Elm Park on Wednesday.
Knights got a pair of tries from Emma Crivello and singles
from Madison Doyle and Katie Rea, who also kicked a pair
of converts, to beat St. Roch Catholic High School from
the third medal in as many years for the National Capital
champions, who have been to the provincial high school
championships in each of the past four years.
Knights had to settle for the consolation medal in 2014
after a second round loss relegated them to the bottom
bracket. And then last year, they were awarded the silver
medal after making it all the way to the final where they
lost to the Oakville Trafalgar Red Devils who repeated
as champions in Wednesday's gold medal game..
bronze medal game marked the end of the high school careers
for graduating co-captains Rachel McCallan and Taylor
Donato who were members of all four city championship
the tournament was a coming out party for Grade 9 additions
like Katie Rae, Emily Lacombe who have a shot at repeating
the accomplishments of McCallan and Donato as they take
up the torch.
