Ross Royals advance to OFSAA rugby semifinals

OSHAWA – The Ross Royals remain on the path to repeating as the OFSAA AAA provincial high school girls’ rugby champions.

The second-seeded Royals are to play the third-seeded St. Roch Ravens of Brampton in a semifinal Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Brooklin. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but had to be moved to Wednesday when storms played havoc with Tuesday’s games.

Ross defeated the seventh-seeded Glebe Gryphons of Ottawa 22-5 before the storms hit Tuesday.

The other semifinal Wednesday at 9 a.m. has top-seeded Oakville Trafalgar Red Devils playing the fourth-seeded Arnprior Redmen at Ajax.

Semifinal losers are to meet in the bronze-medal match at 1 p.m. at Oshawa while the semifinal winners are to tangle in the gold-medal match at 4 p.m. at Oshawa.
