Bruins carve up Totems

Ridge Meadows Bruins men’s rugby team headed to finals against Capilano on Saturday, Nov. 28 at Thomas Haney Secondary starting at 1 p.m

The Ridge Meadows Bruins men’s rugby team will look to cap off its impressive 2015 fall season with a championship by hosting Capilano B in the cup final Saturday, Nov. 28 at 1 p.m. at Thomas Haney secondary.

The Bruins punched their ticket to the B.C. Rugby Union Mainland Division 3 championship game after running roughshod over the UBC Totems, 40-13 on Saturday, Nov. 21. and improved their season record to 8-1.

The first-place Bruins have won six straight games heading into Saturday’s final. The teams’s only loss this fall was a 20-0 shutout at the hands of the Vancouver Rugby Club Rowers on Oct. 3.

Capilano ran its record to 7-2 and the right to play in the finals by dumping the Squamish Axemen 36-5 on Nov. 21. Saturday’s cup final will be a rematch of the two team’s Halloween day game, when the Bruins mauled Capilano 40-28.

On the season, the Bruins were the league’s top scoring team, recording 348 points while giving up a league low 112.

Capilano scored almost 100 points less than the Bruins on the season, registering 248. However, it’s defence was the second stingiest in the league, giving up just 137 points in its nine games.

Women’s Mainland division 2

The Bruins ran their record to 5-2 on the season after a 38-15 beating of Langley on Nov. 21 at Thomas Haney.

The Bruins only losses this season came against the Seattle Saracens.
