ABBOTSFORD — It was a match many had predicted would be a blow-out win in favour of the defending champion Shawnigan Lake Stags.
Instead, Vancouver’s St. George’s Saints never believed they were underdogs, and in the dying moments, almost had the opportunity to pull an upset of major proportions in the B.C. quad-A boys high school rugby championship final Saturday at Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium.
Shawnigan Lake went on to win 12-8, but not before Owen Pitblado of St. George’s chipped the ball through the Stags try-zone with 1:13 remaining, and was just shy of pouncing on it for what would could well have been the game’s winning play.
