Royals add to OFSAA girls’ medal collection

OSHAWA – The Ross Royals keep their medal streak going.

The second-seeded Royals finished the OFSAA provincial high school AAA girls’ rugby championship tournament exactly where they were seeded as silver medalists after suffering a 22-12 loss to the Oakville Trafalgar Red Devils in Wednesday’s championship match.

It was the third consecutive OFSAA medal win for the Royals. They won gold in 2016 by surprising Oakville Trafalgar 27-19 in the final and they claimed bronze in 2015 with a 22-7 win over the Arnprior Redmen.

Ross gained its berth in this year’s final with a 22-5 win over the third-seeded Glebe Gryphons of Ottawa in the semifinals earlier Wednesday.

Oakville Trafalgar advanced to the gold-medal match following a 39-0 blanking of fourth-seeded Arnprior.
