Congratulations to the group of varsity ruggers who led St. Paul's first ever 7's rugby team in the second year of that league. The group took an undefeated and largely unchallenged record into the playoffs on Wednesday against Dakota Collegiate in the semi-final and pulled out a convincing win. One hour fater that game the Cru stepped on to the feild with a determined Kelvin team who quickly put up three tries against the shocked Crusaders. In the second half the Crusaders fought back and right at the end of regulation they tied it up to take the game to OT.
In the extra time the Cru found their stride and quick ball out to Jake Hooker worked well as he went for a good run and then smartly passed back insode to a charging Matt Hanks who took it in for a score right between the posts. Well done and thanlks to all the players and coaches that added 7's to our already busy 15's schedule this season.
