Bayside ends season with a loss

The Bayside Sharks closed out their Canadian Direct Insurance  Premier League rugby season with a 46-17 loss to the UBC Old Boys Ravens Saturday at Jericho Park in Vancouver.

The loss left Bayside seventh in the eight-team league with a 2-5 won-lost record, one point out of the final playoff position.

Peter Clifford kept Bayside in the game in the first half, answering three Old Boys tries with three penalty kicks, leaving the South Surrey side trailing 17-9 at the break.

The Ravens added another five tries and a pair of converts in the second half.

The Shark’s lone try came from Zach Thorpe, with Clifford adding the convert, a score which cut the Old Boys lead to 24-16 in the 54th minute.

Bayside also lost a First Division game Saturday at Jericho Park to the Old Boys Ravens, falling 24-12 to finish the season in sixth place. They will play on the road against the Castaway Wanderers in the first playoff round.

Bayside’s Third Division side easily defeated Ridge Meadows 88-5 to finish in fourth place.
