The result of a Monday rugby match in Sooke was a disappointment for the freshly formed Edward Milne Community School program which had put in a plucky, hard-nosed effort the previous week versus a St. Michaels University School. That game had ended 26-21 for SMUS.
Monday’s (April 11) final score was Oak Bay 36 – EMCS 9.
“We were down to 14 players and borrowed one of theirs,” summarized EMCS coach Matt Mortenson.
“We were missing Conner Grey (scum half), Dante Morandin (flanker), Riley Hannam (Hook), Norris Wass Little (Prop), and Tyler Oleskiew (Flanker), Sean Mckenzie (wing).
“Too many players had to play out of position.”
