Grizzlies vanquish Vipers to claim Crusaders Cup

The G.W. Graham Grizzlies scored a dramatic last second try to down the Vedder Vipers 5-4 on Monday, claiming the Crusaders Cup at the fifth annual Chilliwack Middle School Championships.

The teams played a terrific match highlighted by big hits and slick ball movement — not surprising given the two teams tied their only match during league play.

Meanwhile, the Chilliwack middle school Chargers built up a large lead early and held on for a 9-6 victory over the Mount Slesse Timberwolves in the consolation final.

A flurry of tries allowed the A.D. Rundle Rams to claim fifth with a 7-3 victory over a rugged Rosedale Ravens team.

The Chilliwack Crusaders hope to see an Upper Fraser Valley based team compete for the U-16 Provincial Regional Championship this year.

Coach Terry Puckey has issued an open invite to tryouts for any ruggers born in 1995 or 1996. The tryouts and camps start at 9:30 a.m. Saturdays at Sardis secondary school. Players should bring mouthguards, cleats, runners and commitment.
