Beavers II marched into the provincial finals this weekend to play the Barrhaven Scottish for the championship in Montreal.
The Beavers last played the Scottish when they gave our 2s a pretty solid thrashing (roughly 39-0) in August, so the men knew they were going to have to leave it all on the field to end the fall season.
And so the Beavs came out swinging, playing a first half with such ferocity that we were accused of fielding our Firsts squad. Unfortunately, a last-play conversion by the Scottish sealed our fate 26-25.
Although we didn’t manage to take home the hardware, the last two weeks have demonstrated an unreal level of on-field development from our players. As we stay the course on our rebuild, there is no telling what the Beavers will be able to accomplish going into next season.
Score: 26-25 Loss
Tries: Cummer, Gunner, Pouss
Converts: Sutherland (2)
Penalty Kicks: Sutherland (2)
Man of the Match: Sutherland
Hardest Worker: Gunner
The Banshees have signed up for the new EORU 7s league for the fall.
The EORU is still trying to get a few more women’s teams into the mix, but we’re hopeful to get a few days of games in this fall season.
