Undefeated first day puts Birds in semi-finals

VANCOUVER – The UBC Thunderbirds hosted the teams at Thunderbird Stadium on Friday morning for a chilly final leg of the Canada West Rugby 7s series that once again saw two familiar programs part ways from the pack.

Round robin style play was Friday’s schedule which saw UBC (3-0) take control of Pool B, posting a perfect record beating Fraser Valley 64-0, Trinity Western 59-5 and Alberta 31 -5.

 

Pool A was led by UVic, who kicked off the tournament with a clean 33-5 win over Calgary, followed by a 47-0 win over Lethbridge.

Savannah Bauder continues to be a key player for the ‘Birds as she leads the tournament with six tries, while her teammate Shoshanah Seumanutafa added a try and 10 converts. UVic’s scoring offense was balanced in their first two games as Maelle Reed and Carissa Norsten added two tries each. Alberta’s Michelle Gratton also had a productive day Friday adding 4 tries and eight converts.
