St. Petes wins NCSAA senior girls
Tier 1 rugby championship

The St. Peter Knights senior girls rugby team capped off their season with an emphatic 33-0 win over the South Carleton Storm on Tuesday to win the National Capital secondary school Tier 1 championship and finish their campaign undefeated.

After a uncharacteristically sloppy first half in which the Knights committed over a dozen turnovers, two of which occurred in the shadow of the Storm’s goal posts, they exploded for three tries on their first three possessions in the second half to take total control of the game.

The first try was scored by McKenna Wall less than a minute after play resumed. The second try was scored by Ava Latreille after South Carleton was penalized for hands in the ruck.

A second Storm turnover lead to the Knights’ third try scored on a great individual effort by Emily Harrison, who managed to exploit cracks in South Carleton’s defence all afternoon.

The Knights would add two more tries – one by Faith Dimbongi and the other by Emma Lacelle in the dying seconds of the contest – while Grace Pilon made good on four of her five convert attempts for an extra eight points to contribute to the Knights’ 33-0 win.

The St. Peter girls went into the title game sporting a 6-0 regular season record that included three shutouts.

The Storm, meanwhile, were 4-1-1. The only blemish on their record was a 36-21 loss to the Knights on May 29 in which they scored three tries.

In Monday’s title game, the Storm only managed to get inside the 22-metre line twice and on both occasions they turned the ball over under the relentless pressure of St. Peter’s defence.

The combination of a strong defence in the first half and an opportunistic offence in the second half was more than the Storm could handle and more than enough to give the Knights the perfect ending to a perfect season.
