With the New Brunswick rugby season coming to a close last weekend, we have many accomplishments to recognize within the Black Tide community.
First off, we would like to congratulate both our men’s and women’s sides for their successes this season; both teams finished first in their provincial leagues with the men defeating the Fredericton Loyalists in the NBRU final and travelling to PEI to face the Mudmen in the Maritime finals for the Wheaton Cup. Unfortunately, the men came up short, falling to the PEI Mudmen 27-14 in a hard fought game.
The Mount Allison Mounties women’s team were victorious over NSCC in the ACAA championship final with a 23-20 win in overtime. Black Tide members Isabelle Caissie, Katie Robertson, Bethany Toczko, Maddy Metallic, Michelle Kidd and Michelle Tingley all played in the ACAA final, coached by Black Tide scrumhalf, Marrissa Arsenault; fullback, Jennifer Brander and tighthead prop, Kim Sinclair. First year head coach Kim Sinclair was also named 2012 ACAA Coach of the Year.
Thanks for a great season everyone! See you at the year end banquet!
