CHARLOTTETOWN - The Pictou County Rugby Club traveled to Charlottetown on Sunday to compete in the Division 3 rugby championships, losing 25-7 to the P.E.I. Mudmen.
The Mudmen were the first on the scoreboard, up only 5-0 at halftime. The second half started with the Mudmen scoring early to take a 10-0 lead.
Pictou County then tried to open things up to put some points on the board and made mistakes that the P.E.I. team capitalized on, going up 20-0.
“We have a very young team, that are learning what it takes to compete in championship games and this loss will help us improve as a team for future years,” said coach Scott Taylor.
Pictou County’s try was scored by John Kirby. The convert went to Evan MacDonald. The Division 2 team is waiting for results to see who they will play in semifinal action.
