EMCS Wolverines tear up competition in girls rugby

So far this season, the girls rugby team has posted an 8-1 record

The good times continue to roll for the Edward Milne Community School Wolverines.

So far this season, the girls rugby team has posted an 8-1 record, with the only loss coming at the hands of provincial champs Oak Bay High. (The provincial championships were held at the beginning of the season due to a scheduling conflict).

Last week, the Wolverines lost to Oak Bay 15-5, beat GNS 22-0 and won by forfeit over Esquimalt.

The Wolverines have outscored their opponents 215-42.

“I think the highlights of the season so far have to be being the first team from Sooke to ever qualify for provincials, and then in game three at provincials we scored with no time left to make it to the quarter-finals,” said team manager Matt Dunning.

The team has been led by the strong  offensive play of Rori Wood and defensively by Alexis Dunning.

Dunning and Wood are expected to make the provincial and possibly the national team this year.

But there have been lows to the season as well.

The Wolverines lost two starters to injury before the provincial championships and lost in the quarter-finals.

“I think we all want to win the city title this year. We are in very good shape to do that. I think we have seen a team who is tough and continues to fight even though they have suffered some key injuries,” Dunning said.

 

“This team is very young playing against girls that are almost 18 years old. I believe we are setting up the EMCS program to do very well for years to come.”
