Here’s our look at semifinal Thursday at the BC high school rugby championships at the double-, triple- and quad-A level.
The Shawnigan Lake Stags produced a result Thursday in the semifinal of the B.C. high school championships which, based on their recent run of dominance, puts them in perhaps the most unique position in this province’s entire sports history.
Are the Stags, who beat the Fraser Valley champion Earl Marriott Mariners 102-10 to earn a berth in Saturday’s title game, the first team you can honestly say is so good relative to the rest of the field that the thing they need most, is a higher-level of league to play in?
Defending champion Shawnigan, which has won six of the last seven B.C. triple-A titles, will face Vancouver’s St. George’s Saints, 25-10 winners over Victoria’s Oak Bay Barbarians, in Saturday’s final.
St. George’s defeated Shawinigan Lake in the 2014 final, the only title-tilt loss by the Stags over their current run.
