Erin posts slim opening-game win in girls’ rugby

GUELPH – The Erin Raiders started their District 4/10 high school girls’ rugby season with a hard-fought 19-10 victory over the Guelph CVI Green Gaels Wednesday at Alumni Stadium.

The game was close throughout. Once Erin got the lead early in the first half, the Raiders didn’t give it up, but the Gaels twice cut the gap to two points.

However, the only scores of the second half were a try and convert by Erin on the final play of the match. That try also gave Erin a 3-2 edge in tries scored during the game.
