NANAIMO, BC - Three days of age grade rugby sevens action came to a close on Sunday morning with Fraser Valley capturing titles in the Boys U14 and Women’s U17 divisions at the BC Summer Games.

The BC Winter and BC Summer Games are British Columbia’s biennial celebration of sport and community.  Since 1978, the BC Games have taken place in 38 communities and involved over 350,000 participants and volunteers and thousands more as spectators and supporters.

U17 Women: Fraser Valley 17, Island Central Coast 12
Fraser Valley’s women’s team defeated Vancouver Island Central Coast by a score of 17-12 in the Cup Final to earn a rare three-peat at the provincial tournament.

Mackenzie Carson, Morgan Ursel and Vivi Johnson each crossed over for the Valley with Nakisa Levale adding a convert.

Fraser Valley had previously lost to Vancouver Island Central Coast in the pool rounds on day one.

“The girls were amazing today and gelled well as a team,” said Valley coach Lauren Kerr. “We had lost to the Island earlier in the tournament and knew it would be a tough game. But once we got our first try it calmed the nerves. The girls dealt with the pressure and did what they had to do.”

U14 Boys: Fraser Valley 36, Fraser River-Delta 0
The U14 Boys division saw Fraser Valley run in six tries to defeat Fraser River Delta 36-0 to claim back-to-back Summer Games titles. James MacDonald tallied a brace of tries and tacked on three conversions to lead all scorers with 16 points. Samwel Uko had a trio of tries and Dylan Roach also dotted down.

“We have a strong group that have been training for the past six weeks,” said Fraser Valley head coach Scott Alexander. “The boys came to play today and bought into the system.”

“The strength of this group is in the clubs and school teams that feed into our program,” Alexander added. “Every one of our kids has played rugby and had experience heading into this tournament.”
