Harrison Trimble High School (HTHS) hosted Bernice MacNaughton High School(BMHS) tonight in local High School Rugby action. HTHS are coming off of a great 10-0 win over rival RHS and are looking to improve to 2-0. BMHS are restarting their program this year after a couple of years away.
The final score was 15-0 for HTHS. With the quality of Rugby HTHS presented earlier in the week, this is a very good showing for BMHS.
BMHS play again Tuesday in Riverview against the Royals and HTHS will look to go to 3-0, but will have to out class Miramichi Valley High School in The Miramichi.
BMHS Rookie Coach Robbie Baxter posted the following after the game: “Couldn’t be prouder of my rugby boys, they all played awesome in their first rugby game ever! We may have lost but we were in it til the end. #TraditionStartsHere #We‘llOnlyGetBetter”
Thanks to Head Coaches Jones and Baxter, and Referee Adam “Curly” Campbell.
