Sarnia Saints Women Rugby Remain Undefeated
June 25, 2012 


With five starters missing, the Saints women's team showcased their depth with a 19-15 win over the Wilmont Warthogs. Shelane Stuart scored the first try of the game for the Saints, after some hard fought rucks by the forwards. Daria Keane hit the gaps, scoring 2 tries and Lisa Oleniuk completed two conversions, giving the Saints a 19-0 lead before the end of the first forty minutes.

Wilmont gave the Saints a run for their money in the second half, coming back with an energy and aggressiveness the Saints seemed to be lacking. The Wilmont forwards pushed through the Saints defense, scoring twice. The Saints continued to fight, but the Warthogs were able to score one more try, this time from an intercepted pass and a long sprint down the pitch. With 10 minutes left in the match, the Saints picked up their game, running the ball into the Warthogs' end and keeping it there until the final whistle.

A well deserved player of the match was awarded to Sarah Mimnagh.
