The Ridge Meadows Bruins U-17 rugby squad notched their second win of the season Sunday, edging rival Vancouver club Meralomas 36-20.

The Bruins put forth a great team effort with five players scoring tries. Kyle Cameron had a pair of tries, while Marco Koeder had one try and three converts. Josh Auger, Brett Boyce and Tim Hargreaves also scored for the Bruins.

“The boys have really come together as a team,” said manager Jenn Bott. “We have a great bunch of players, coaches and parents to put it all together.”

The Bruins are 2-4 so far this season, and play this Sunday, Nov. 13, against United Rugby Club at home at Telosky Stadium at 12:30 p.m. Bott said new players are always welcome to join the local club.

“It is nice to be getting more interest in our sport since the Rugby World Cup that took place last month in New Zealand,” said Bott. “Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports and we are lucky to have the right kind of weather to be able to play a year-long season here.”
