Highland men dropped in NRU Cup play

BURLINGTON – Fergus Highland suffered a 50-24 loss to the Burlington Centaurs Saturday in the opening round of the men’s NRU Cup.

The Centaurs scored eight tries in the game, twice as many as Highland.

This year the NRU Cup is a round-robin affair involving the top four teams of the NRU Men’s Division A1 men’s league that decided to play in the tournament. The Guelph Redcoats finished fourth in the league standings, but declined the invitation to compete as many of their players also play in the university league which left the local team short staffed.

Highland is to play the Saints at Sarnia Saturday at 3 p.m. and wrap up the round-robin by hosting the Niagara Wasps Sept. 23 at 3 p.m.
