Rustlers swat down Gnats in home opener

The Williams Lake Rustlers’ season got off to a blazing start Saturday.

The weather was hot and the play was physical Saturday afternoon as the Rustlers overtook the Prince George Gnats.

The final score was 36-29.

Rustlers head coach Braden McCallum said he was pleased with the afternoon’s result, and is looking forward to more good battles during the season.

“The boys played a great game,” he said. “We had some passages of play that looked better than I expected for our first time. I also saw some things we need to work on, which is excellent, as well.”

McCallum said in his three-plus seasons of coaching, the Rustlers Saturday’s game was the most exciting, back and forth game he’s seen between the two teams.

“The rematch with Prince George on June 2 is going to be great to watch.”

The Rustlers regular season schedule will see the team travel to Prince George to wrap up its home-and-home series with the Gnats June 2, before going to Terrace for a double header against Terrace and Prince Rupert June 9-10.

On June 16-17 they’ll host Terrace and Prince Rupert to wrap up that home-and-home series before the Stampede Rugby Tournament takes place the Canada Day long weekend.
