U SPORTS LETHBRIDGE, Alta. – For the first time in the 20-year history of Canadian university women’s rugby, a team from the RSEQ has been crowned champion with the Ottawa Gee-Gees beating the Laval Rouge et Or, 20-10 in an all-RSEQ final.
“I have an incredible group of leaders on this team. The leaders did their jobs and the young ones followed,” said Ottawa head coach Jen Boyd. “It’s tremendous for these women. They’ve set a new standard for rugby at the University of Ottawa over the last five years.
“I couldn’t think of a more deserving group and they earned it. It’s been a tremendous climb to the top and we finally made it. I’m just so tremendously proud of the girls and the support that we’ve got from the university – it’s a real dream come true. “
StFX regroups to take home bronze medal
Recovering from a disheartening loss in Saturday’s semifinal, the defending champion StFX X-Women claimed the bronze medal at the 20th U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship with a 22-12 win over the Canada West champion Calgary Dinos.
“I am very proud of how the girls played today, it is always tough playing for bronze,” said StFX head coach Mike Cavanagh. “They really picked up their game today. The girls were very disappointed after yesterday’s loss and we knew we could play better and we knew if we could play to our potential we could do well today.”
Guelph rebounds to leave Lethbridge with win over host
Closing out the 2017 season for both teams, the Guelph Gryphons scored three tries in each half to beat the host Lethbridge Pronghorns 34-12 in the second consolation semifinal.
“We had to change our game plan with the weather, we like to play wide expansive rugby but in the conditions it doesn’t really help us play that way,” said Guelph head coach Colette McAuley. “We had to play a little tighter game but we tried to still play fast and move it quickly out of contact.”
