Earl Marriott Mariners finish fourth at rugby provincials
The Earl Marriott Mariners finished fourth at B.C. High School Senior Boys Rugby Championships last week, ending the tournament with back-to-back losses against two of the province’s top teams.
After a quarter-final win over Vancouver St. George’s Wednesday afternoon, the Mariners were faced with the daunting task of taking on No. 1-seeded Shawnigan Lake Thursday – whom EMS coach Adam Roberts said “are like men out there.”
Shawnigan beat Marriott 47-6 at Abbotsford Rotary Stadium to advance to the finals – which they also won handily, 43-0 over Victoria’s Oak Bay.
In the bronze-medal match, Earl Marriott lost 22-19 North Vancouver’s Carson Graham.
Earl Marriott, seeded No. 5 heading into provincials. began the tournament with a road win May 28 over the South Kamloops Titans.
The Semiahmoo Totems, who lost their first-round game against St. George’s earlier this month, finished 14th out of 16 teams; they lost the 13/14 placing game Saturday, 55-10 to the Argyle Pipers of North Vancouver.
