Trojan Pride! AAA Semi-Final Recap

It was a rough go for top seeds in all AAA action.

cropped-hths-2016.jpg

HTHS Trojans Host Final Friday June 3rd at 5 PM

Boys AAA:

GAME #1.   HTHS travelled to play Oromocto High School and found themselves being exploited by the fast back play of the hosts. HTHS countered with powerful ball running and turned it into a back and forth affair.

A key shift in personnel changed the complexion of the Trojan side and resulted in the HTHS starting Fly Half, Guimond, move into play 6 and resulted in a try by the hard running Guimond. Strong play was seen all over the field by HTHS. The starting winger moved into scrum half kept things rolling. Outstanding games played by Fall and Hammer as usual. Shannon and McAllister waited for the best time to play their best games of the year. Rarely will you see such a big 7 as McAllister cover side line to sideline and tackle outside backs all day long. Shannon’s pressure defence resulted in 2 kicks charge downs, one for a try. Shannon’s 2nd try was simply amazing. Words doesn’t to it justice. Link to the video will be posted on the weekend.

Final Score was 39-29 for HTHS.

GAME #2: MVHS hosted Saint John High. Saint John, being the 2nd seed won on the road and will play HTHS for the championship Friday at 5.

Girls AAA:

GAME #1.   In a division that has had NE finalists for 3 straight year, the Moncton High Purple Knights were strong favourites to win while hosting Saint John High.

Saint John Fly Half(Porrier on the game sheet I had) opened the game with 3 tries before setting up her full back for another. MHS fought their was back, but as MHS were threatening late, The Fly Half scored her fourth try and converted it for good measure. A solid win for the visitors. Strong play from their 8 and 10 while their team defence contained MHS just enough. This was a very exciting team to watch and demonstrated taking on the ball with great pace. They will be fun to watch in the final.

In addition to Porrier 4 tries and one convert(22 points), Graham added 7 points from a try and convert.
MHS try scorers were: Paterson, Green and Jones. One convert by LeBlanc.

Final Score was 29-17 for Saint John.

GAME #2.   RHS had to visit powerhouse Simonds. Simonds were the only 1st seed in the AAA to defend home field this season and earn the honour to host an all Saint John Final this Thursday as that host SJS.

Good Luck to all the teams still in action. Great season by all those teams who participated this last weekend.

Codiac Cup & May 24th Full Recap

Boys: HTHS(19)@RHS(26)

RHS needed an 18 point home victory to keep play off hopes alive.

The first score was at the 10 minute mark and was started by a penalty at midfield. Fly Half Bessy kicked for touch and RHS had a line out on the HTHS 15. RHS won the line out clean and started a driving maul for 10 metres. Doucet broke from the maul and tried to run it in from 5 yards out. HTHS was called for an offside and on the ensuing penalty, Spruce U16  Norman ran the ball in from 5 metres breaking a couple of tackles on the way. Convert attempt failed.

At the 20 minute mark RHS were awarded another penalty 15 metres away from where the whistle was blown. Bessy ran to the mark and took advantage of the open space by tapping quickly and breaking a tackle to cross the line. Convert was missed.

3 minutes later RHS was awarded another penalty at the HTHS 40 metre line and Bessy made a beautiful kick 10 metres out from the goal line. Another clean line out and maul led to a patient Doucet with ball in hand at the back of the maul as the forwards drove the ball 10 yards to cross the line where Doucet fell to the ground for the score.

This was a well executed set piece that all the forwards contributed on. It looked like RHS was on the way to a route however this seemed to wake up HTHS and they responded 5 minutes later.

HTHS had control of the ball at midfield and began to drive down the field by continuously running heavy balls. They were rewarded as they sucked in the RHS defence and McIntyre scored from 8 yards out by reaching the undefended edge. Convert was made by Hasul on a beautiful kick close to the sidelines.

Score at half 15-7 for the home team.

RHS WaterAt the 15 minute mark of the second half RHS was awarded yet another penalty deep in HTHS territory. This time it was 8 metres out and it was a case of déjà vu where the tenth grader, Norman, scored his 2nd try of the game, again breaking tackles along the way. The conversion was made this time by Bessey.
HTHS put the pressure back on after disrupting a RHS scrum on the RHS 5 metre line. RHS won the put in but the ball squirted out of the back of the scrum where HTHS flanker Oxner pounced on the ball in the RHS end zone. The convert was made again by Hasul.

At the 25 minute mark of the 2nd half RHS started a back play off a scrum on their own 40 metre line. Bessey dummied a scissor play to centre Hawkes and then popped a pass to the oncoming outside centre Lean who exploded through a gap and scampered 60+ metres straight up the field juking 2 would be tacklers along the way to score for RHS. Convert was missed.cropped-odc3-e1462200048132.jpg
HTHS rounded out the scoring with 2 minutes remaining in the match when Hamer quick tapped on a penalty and sliced through the RHS defence from 15 metres out. Convert was missed. Final Score RHS 27 – HTHS 19. RHS had to beat HTHS by 18 in order to stay in the play-off picture. Even though RHS won the game HTHS was awarded the 2nd place in the NE division and will advance.

Girls: MHS(31)@EMM(5)

MHS finished the regular season with a 31-5 victory yesterday. Tries by Pharuns, Jones and Paterson collected a hat trick.

NEXT:
RHS finish their season tomorrow vs JMH. HTHS and all other play off reps(MVHS for boys) and MHS & RHS on the girls side all have to wait until Friday’s results come in to learn who they play on Sunday.

High School Girls: Full Results May 18th 2016

MHS(20)@HTHS(0): Exhibition

13243882_722048141268394_9166958948854501124_o

Hasson Try

MHS Try Scorers: Breau, MacIsaac, Hasson,& LaPierre.

Game was played in great spirits and both teams played as well as they could. HTHS camped out on the MHS try-line for 10 min at the end of the game but could not punch it in. 
BMHS(38)@ODC(17)
BMHS came out with full guns blazing for the second game in a row and opened up a 26-5 lead by half time. The second half they cooled their engines and played to a 12-12 all second half. Final score was 38-17.
These two teams current are the most prolific scoring teams in the division with 145 points(BMHS) and 115 points(ODC) through their five games. MHS(98) is currently third with a game in hand.
Sadly, both of these teams will not make the play offs.
BMHS prop forward Jensen had another great kicking game, going 4/5 on conversions. Try scorers for the victors were: flanker Clowater, scrum half Buckingham, centre Atkins and a pair for fly half Lund.
Duplicating their scoring efforts from the first game of the year, ODC Centre Jamara touched down a pair with full back Taillefer one more. Donelle converted one.
MVHS(5)@RHS(10)
13275062_1748100215426791_382473060_o.jpgRHS Threatened early and often, mostly via breaks from scrum half and captain McCabe. MVHS did amazingly well to limit her to one first half try. Half time score was 5-0.
This game had huge play off implications. A loss by 3 points or more certainly meant RHS would loss out on a play off spot.
The 2nd half had the MVHS centre receive a 13271628_1748100108760135_1504262570_oyellow card for a high tackle. RHS were unable to capitalize. In fact, MVHS #2 Henderson scored a try for the visitors while being down a player.
MVHS had evened the score. MVHS were consistent in playing off of 10, and often played it back inside to forwards. RHS were able to deal with this quite well. The MVHS centres seemed to threaten every time they ran wide.
The MVHS centres were also very solid on defence. RHS did score a try by fullback Butland, who quickly picked a ball off the ground from about 20 yards out and ran it into the corner.
The 5 point lead for RHS in a game where they could lose by 2 and still make the playoffs, essentially gave them a 2 score lead.
MVHS did threaten to break a big run wide, but again, Butland made a huge tackle.
Final score was 10-5. RHS will be the second seed from their division and will travel to play in the semi final on Sunday May 29th.
Thanks to Kyle Bragdon for pics of the RHS game. We will be back on the weekend with an update on the standings. One regular season game remains.

Just To Put It Out There…Play Off Outlook

High School Girls Rugby

Conditions Below:

1st condition: Lets assume I know how the tie breakers work

2nd condition: We are assuming MHS are the 1st seed.

A three way tie is possible after today. A three way tie would result if MVHS beat RHS and BMHS beat ODC.

If that occurs, the tie breaker looks as follows:

Team Current +/- Result
RHS 11 Win,Tie or Loss by 2 or less RHS In
MVHS -17 Win by 24 MVHS In
BMHS 6 MVHS win by 3-23 BMHS In

The +/- referenced here only accounts for the +/- in games between these three teams.

RHS have beaten BMHS by 11 and BMHS beat MVHS by 17. As a result the BMHS +/- is +6 while RHS is +11 and MVHS is -17.

Should ODC play spoiler and beat BMHS, then the winner of MVHS @ RHS is in!
