Last Thursday the Lake City Falcons junior girls rugby team (grade 8-10s) traveled down to 100 Mile House to face the Eagles, coming away with a 20-5 win.

The 100 Mile House team was short players, so the LCSS squad lent them four players.

Junior captains Emma Pfliederer and Laura Pfliederer (twins) guided the relatively unexperienced team.

During the second half Laura played for 100 Mile House, scoring their only try.

Pfleiderer also scored for the Falcons in the first half.

Other tries were scored by Emma Feldinger, Ayme Desmond and Alexandra Weiland.

The girls all played great and are showing an understanding of the game and a lot of potential.

Everything was good fun and all the girls enjoyed playing time as we were short of substitutions.

Some of the younger girls have also been chosen to accompany the senior team to the 15-a-side provincial championships this week.

This will be a wrap for the season until the new school year starts.

The rugby girls were presented the first banner and trophy won for Lake City Secondary School Tuesday.

The girls leave Wednesday morning for the B.C. High School Girls Rugby Association Provinciaal Championships in Port Alberni.

They are ranked fifth in the AA division, and will play No. 4, Brentwood College, on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
