Queen's Girls Rugby Tournament - Report 04.08.14
The girls rugby team took the field for the first time today playing in the Queen's University tournament on a wet, cold, miserable day. The team was a mixture of experienced and brand new players. The girls started off against Sir Oliver Mowat from Scarborough in the driving rain, and despite a close game, came up on the losing end of a 7-0 score. The next game against Brockville Colegiate saw Annie Kennedy get the first points of the season by kicking a penalty, then both she and Lily Dickson followed this up with tries to give Regi the 13-7 win. The third game against Holy Trinity of Ottawa was again a hard fought battle, and despite being on the try line twice, Regi just couldn't get the ball over for the score and came up on the losing end. The final game against Ernestown saw a mainly rookie team take the field and with much improved rucking and tackling, come away with tries by Lily Dickson, Hannah Greenwood, and Annie Kennedy and 1 convert by Annie for a 17-0 win. The day saw rookie players stepping up and veterans showing consistency and leadership on the field.
