Falcons perfect at away tournament

The Lake City Falcons junior boys rugby team manhandled the competition in Smithers this past weekend, posting a perfect 5-0 record.

The Lake City Falcons junior boys rugby team manhandled the competition in Smithers this past weekend, posting a perfect 5-0 record.

“Over the course of a day and a half we played five games — four of them seven a side with the remaining game a 10-a-side match,” said Falcons coach Jason Ryll, who co-coaches the team alongside Roy Argue.

In the five games combined the Falcons out scored the opposition 169-10.

Lake City took on Smithers first in a two-game set, recording six tries and three converts to win 36-0. Try scorers in the match were Jaye Richards, Ben Lamb-Yorski, Orrin Watkinson, Ryan Haskins, Lukas Johnson and Jordan Murphy.

In the second game the Falcons controlled the play again, winning 36-5. Try scorers were Richards, Noah Ryll, Murphy, Ty Feldinger, Watkinson and Lamb-Yorski.

Next, Richards (2), Watkinson, Kye Lingholt, Ryan Haskins, Ryll and Parker Kennedy combined to run over Burns Lake, 41-0.

The fourth game saw the Falcons meet Fort St. James’ senior boys team in a 10-a-side match. The Falcons, undaunted, won 24-5. Richards, Murphy, Mackenzie Dormuth and Ryan Gannon scored in the winning effort.

Finally, Lake City took on Smithers again, winning 32-0. Richards, Dormuth, Chasen Richburg (2), Johnson and Lamb-Yorski converted tries to cap off the unbeaten weekend.

“All in all it was an undefeated weekend representing Williams Lake in beautiful Smithers,” Ryll said. “The weather was incredible with sunshine both days and every single person on the team scored at least one try. Great teamwork all in all.”

The Falcons travelled to 100 Mile House for some exhibition matches Thursday, and will continue their season after that with a few more out-of-town tournaments.
