Sharks defeat Richmond in rain-soaked rugby tilt
Despite getting a hand to the throat, Bayside Sharks' Henry O'Brien attempts to tackle a Richmond ball-carrier during a rain-soaked men's division one rugby game Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park.
The Sharks won the contest 47-7 after jumping out to a 28-0 lead at halftime.
Standoff Eric Sugawara, a Semiahmoo Secondary alum, played "his best game of the year," according to Sharks head coach Pat Kearney.
"He controlled the entire game for 80 minutes... his vision around the field was impressive and his tactical- and goal-kicking was spot on," Kearney continued.
After taking a week off for Easter, Bayside returns to the field April 14 for a road game in Seattle. They finish the regular reason April 21 at home against the Velox Valhallians.
