District 10

Bishop Mac, Orangeville in girls’ rugby consolation final

GUELPH – The Bishop Macdonell Celtics and the Orangeville Bears are to meet Thursday in District 4/10 high school girls’ rugby’s consolation final.

The consolation category in the playoffs is for the teams that finished in the bottom two of their pool created this year to give those teams at least one more game after high rugby was cancelled by the pandemic in 2020 and 2021.

The consolation final is to be the first game of the championship doubleheader Thursday at Victoria Park in Fergus.

The Celtics and Bears are to tangle at 5:15 p.m. while the championship match between the Centre Dufferin Royals and Erin Raiders is to follow at 6:30 p.m.

The championship match will decide D4/10’s lone representative in the CWOSSA A/AA championship tournament in Owen Sound May 20 and 24.

The Ross Royals and Guelph CVI Green Gaels lost their championship semifinal matches, but both move on to the CWOSSA AAA championship tournament as the league gets two berths in it. That tournament is to be held in Brantford May 18 and 20.
