EMCS stays strong in Rugby

In spite of a recent loss against Stelly's, Sooke's EMCS Rugby Seniors' Boys team is well positioned for the season's finale.

Even though their game against Stelly’s was a bit of a disappointment, the Edward Milne community school (EMCS) Senior Boys rugby team have enjoyed an excellent season so far. According to their coach, Matt Mortenson, they are positioned to be “second overall regardless of what else happens in the season.”

“EMCS are having an amazing year … until yesterday when they got thumped by Stellys secondary school,” wrote Fred Whittaker in an email. “It was a lovely afternoon at Stellys on a firm and green pitch. EMCS scored first but stepped off the gas in the first half allowing three tries (15 points) to Stellys. EMCS had little flair and the usual aggression was missing and allowed another 10 points to Stellys. Two more try conversions (four points) and Stellys won going away.”

Nontheless, EMCS has had a very strong season so far, placing them second overall.

Here is how the EMCS rugby season has gone so far:

  • EMCS 24 vs Belmont 5
  • EMCS 5 vs GNS 29
  • EMCS 24 vs Spectrum 5
  • EMCS 66 vs Reynolds 5
  • EMCS 5 vs Belmont 5
  • EMCS 41 vs Esquimalt 0
  • EMCS/Belmont 71 vs Crescent Heights (Calgary) 10

Monday May 12 sees EMCS go up against the AA top team, Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS), in the semi-finals. Should they win, the final is played on Thursday May 15 at St. Michael’s University School (SMU), for the Colonel Hodgkins Cup.
