Miramichi Valley Scores 45!!!

The Miramichi Valley Girls started the season off with a bang on Thursday April 27th versus JMA.  Despite very wet field conditions, ball handling was well managed and the set pieces sharp for both sides.

Co-Captians for the visitors scored a total of 3 tries, Francis-Savoie with one and Sweezey with 2.


Sweezey scoring one of her two tries on the day.

Otherwise, the try scoring was spread around very well.  Other try scorers on the day for MVHS were Siddal, McNeil, Santamaria de Bustos, Kenny, Chambers, and D. Davies

As an observer this looked to be the most complete team MVHS has started a season with, and certainly the most comprehensive victory in recent memory to kick start their season.

JMA Captain Buchanan played amazing all game and led a late surge with JMA threatening to put a try on the board for the home team, but MVHS were up to playing the full 70 minutes and ran in a long try to end the game.

Both MVHS and JMA will be in tough today as JMA hosts Riverview High and MVHS travel to Moncton to play Moncton High School at Rocky Stone.

Today’s full schedule is as follows:




MVHS@MHS (4:30pm)

All at 5pm unless otherwise noted.

Full Results from April 27th are as follows:

TRHS (61)                   @                EO(7)

The BMHS Highlander’s girls rugby team bested JMH Tommies 32-10 in their league opener on Thursday night at McKenna Field.   1st year player Courtney Sarault scored 3 tries in her first ever league game, 2nd year Center Gabi Choumiline-Savoie scored her first league try, and veteran full-back Jessica Sauter also ran in a try and converted a kick. Team Captain Anna Mallard converted three kicks in the win.  Anna, unfortunately broke her wrist in a fall during the  game and will be on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.  Anna was at the scrimmage on Saturday and in good spirits.  We all wish her a speedy recovery.
