Varsity Girls Rugby
Lady Knights defend city title, but mission far from accomplished
By Fred Sherwin

The St. Peter Knights varsity girls rugby team put an exclamation point on what has so far been a perfect season on Tuesday, posting an emphatic 84-0 win over the Glebe Gryphons in the city championship game, but their quest for perfection is far from over.

Last year, the Knights bid for a perfect season ended with a loss in their second game at the OFSAA provincial championships. They went on to win their next their games including the consolation final, but it did little to console their disappointment.

This year their lone goal was to get back to the OFSAA tournament and hopefully make the final. So far so good. In their last six games, they've outscored their opponents by a margin of 340-15, and the 15 points were scored against them in the same game. Take away their opening 7-0 win over Ashbury and they've averaged almost 67 points per game.That's an incredible stat in the sport of rugby.

The challenge now is to take the momentum they've gathered up over the past three weeks and keep it going heading into OFSAA.

Knights head coach Pat Thompson is confident his team is focused and motivated on the task at hand.

"The first step was to win the city championship, but there's no question the girls are looking forward to going to OFSAA and hopefully win a medal," says Thompson.

The tournament will take place June 1-3 in Mississauga.

Team roster: Rachel McCallan, Carolyn Williams, Lydia Salgo, Vanessa Macias, Rachel Delaney, Madison Doyle, Josee Lachance, Alex Clarke, Taylor Donato, Emily Tippins, Sydney Weatherall, Kathleen Haggarty, Emily Gray, Maryn Devine, Silvana Castro, Kyra Cahill, Angela Bolick, Emma Crivello, Quinn Durand, J-M Tashera, Grace Blunden, Veronica Abou Faissal and Kaitlyn Carney.
