On May 3, the Beavers and Banshees senior teams hosted the Gladiateurs de l’Outaouais for some pre-season friendlies at TD Place.
Although it looked like we were going to spend the evening getting very wet, the rain ended just in time for the women’s kick-off. And despite only having had 3 practices before the match, both teams came out in numbers ready to get started for the summer.
The Banshees maintained possession in the Glads territory for the vast majority of the game, but ultimately lost by a try. The men played a close match for the first half of the game before the Beavers took the lead with several tries to close out the game.
Huge fun was had, both on the pitch and at the social afterwards, and the games were an epic way for the senior players to start getting ramped up for the regular season.
