Cowichan High School captures provincial Rugby Sevens title

Delta, BC: Cowichan High School defeated Shawnigan Lake by a score of 15-7 on Saturday, to capture the 2011 BC High School Girls Rugby Sevens championship.In the consolation final, Merritt defeated Walnut Grove by a score of 34-0 to finish in third place. Cowichan High School’s junior squad finished the tournament in fifth place and did not qualify for a placement match.

FINAL – Cowichan High School 15, Shawnigan Lake School 7
Cowichan went into the final as the top seed having posted a perfect 4-0 record in the round robin. Cowichan came out firing, and led 15-0 at the break with Sophy Cutt running in a try and Christy Scholten crossing over twice. Shawnigan controlled possession in the second half and when Lizzy Adams converted Terri Evanson’s try to narrow the gap to 15-7, it appeared as though the comeback was in full swing. Cowichan’s defence buckled down, however, and repelled any further Shawnigan offensive efforts in the final minutes.

CONSOLATION – Merritt 34, Walnut Grove 0
Fresh off their recent rugby tour of Fiji, Merritt were too strong for Walnut Grove, blanking their mainland rivals by a score of 34-0 to win the consolation final. Two speedsters recorded the bulk of Merritt’s points, as Brittany Brabant and Shayla George recorded two tries apiece.
