Kermodes face first loss of season

After two crushing victories over Prince Rupert and Houston, the Kermodes senior boy’s rugby team faced its first loss of the season against Smithers.

After two  crushing victories over Prince Rupert and Houston, the Kermodes senior boy’s rugby team faced its first loss of the season against Smithers.

The games were played in a tournament hosted in Smithers between the four teams April 30 to May 1.

However, coach for the team Sean Hall is very pleased with the team’s performance, noting that for a team that has been together for 10 weeks to take on another which has had program in place for 10 years speaks volumes of the character and heart of the Terrace players.

“It really speaks to the boys’ heart. There wasn’t a single one of them that quit,” Hall said.

He also said that experience comes from making mistakes and the boys

learned volumes from the match against Smithers.

“We had moments of brilliance, which were unfortunately followed by moments of inexperience,” Hall said, adding the team is looking forward to the next match against Smithers.

To date the Kermodes’ inaugural season has been off to a strong start. Game one of the season was a stomping 45-0 victory over Houston, and game two was an even stronger 76 –  0, over Prince Rupert.

The team will now travel to Vanderhoof May 13 and 14 to compete in the zone qualifiers for the single berth available

for senior boy’s rugby in the north for provincials.
