NPSS boys rugby team to play for third after falling to Grande Prairie

The North Peace Secondary School boys rugby team had their first game of the playoffs at home last night against Grande Prairie Composite. Unfortunately for the home side they were down a few key players in the contest, and that played a part as they fell by a score of 34-17.

After the game coach Clayton Woodruff said the team did what they could under the circumstances, and was happy with the effort the squad displayed overall

“It was a good effort, really good effort. We had to start some kids that aren’t even in high school. They did the best that they could. We played 60 minutes of rugby. We had some moments where we shone but we didn’t quite have the depth today.”

While they may have lost, the season isn’t over for the NPSS boys. They’ll play in the third place game against a to be determined opponent next Wednesday.
