Beamsville at OFSSA

Both the Beamsville Bucs rugby teams went to OFSSA last week. It was the third year in a row for the Frank Schilte and Chris Brown coached girls team and they have gone up in the standings each year. This year they lost to the eventual winners Trenton and lost in the bronze medal game to Norwood. This gives them the antique bronze medal and a fourth place at the AA OFSSA. The team came fifth last year and sixth the year before.

It was the first year for this Beamsville senior boys team coached by Darren Moore and Dave Franklin and was built on last year's strong junior team. Inexperience showed in the first game against number seven ranked Queen Elizabeth of Kingston but a strong game against Erin High School put them in a consolation semifinal against Appleby College. Beamsville played well but Appleby, who were ranked sixth, scored a try and conversion with a couple of minutes to go to win 12 to 5. Grimsby player Martin Colyn scored Beamsville's only try. It was a very good showing for an inexperienced team and hopefully shows what they have to do next year.
