Centaurs, Alumni & Rugby Fans!
TOMORROW NIGHT – Tuesday, August 23 – KO @ 7:00 pm
Our own U18 Centaur – GRAEME FRANCOLINI has been selected to play with the U19 Ontario Blues! Come out and show your support for an up & coming Centaur!
This past weekend marked the end of the season for several of the Centaurs teams including the Centaurs II’s, the BERTIES and the women’s teams.
After a challenging week for the Burlington Centaurs men with tough loses back to back from Niagara and Hamilton 1st XV, the club came together to field a team with the BERTIES travelling to Wilmot for a touch game and the Centaurs 2nd XV travelling back to Hamilton with the Abercarn Shield on the line.
The Burlington Centaurs 2nd XV pulled together to field a team with minimal subs. Thanks to Chris Kelly for putting aside his coaching responsibilities & clipboard to lace up the boots.
The Centaurs 2nd XV put out a physical game in the August heat and put the Hamilton defence on their heels early with a kick from Juan Palacio. The Centaurs were able to consistently disrupt Hamilton’s line out. The scoring came early in the game with veteran Centaur Nick Manz driving back two Hamilton defenders to score over the line.
The Centaurs kept the pressure on Hamilton forcing the opposition to make handling errors and passing mistakes. Kyle Wilkins took advantage of a bad pass by intercepting the ball and outpacing the defence to score on an 80 meter run. Kyle offering great support would cross the line again to score and win Man of the Match on the day.
Rugby Phenom Zack Shurtleff scored a try with a show & go from the back of a ruck to speed past the poor post defence.
The Centaurs backline showed fantastic passing letting the ball do the work and Nelson Stoneham with an amazing supporting run would score a try. For the Centaurs to score 5 tries in the first half and win the game with the bonus point 33-15 over Hamilton Hornets and bring home the Abercarn Shield!
The Centaurs 1st XV host the Guelph Redcoats this Saturday at home with a social fundraising – Centaur RACE NIGHT that evening starting at 8:00 pm.
MUST have your horses chosen prior to the races. ONLY $2 entry with all funds going towards OUR club. Lots of Prizes and Giveaways!!
