The Colonel By Cougars junior boys rugby team opened their regular season schedule with a well-earned win against the St. Peter Knights on Tuesday in a game that saw them come back from a 14-0 deficit.

The Knights got off to a quick start scoring a pair of converted tries in the first half, but then they let up just long enough to allow the Cougars to regroup and score their first try of the season.

The effort gave Colonel By a confidence boost which they quickly turned into two more tries to take a 21-14 lead.

The Knights cut the deficit to 21-19 in the second half, but a fourth try by the Cougars would extend their lead back to seven points.

The outcome of the game came down to the final seconds. Needing a converted try to tie the game, the Knights managed to get the ball down to the try line, but they couldn't get it over as the Cougars stood them up twice before the final whistle ended the contest.

Jimi Aribido scored two tries for the Cougars, while Femi Ilori and Daniel Oladejo added one each. Oladejo was also good on three of four convert attempts.

The Knights' tries were scored by Matt Byrne, Quinn Nadon and Brad Pichete while Matt Therien made two of his three convert attempts.
