Brentwood development team tested against Vanier

Brentwoodl’s girls rugby team picked up two XV wins over AAA teams over the last week and a half.

Brentwood College School’s girls rugby team followed up their third-place finish at the provincial sevens championship with two XV wins over AAA teams over the last week and a half.

After an easy victory over Nanaimo District Secondary on April 21, the school played host to G.P. Vanier on Tuesday afternoon.

The Brentwood and Vanier coaches agreed to play their top squads in the first half of the game, and their development groups in the second.

After winning the first half 24-5, Brentwood was edged 5-0 in the second.

“It was a good day for our top team, who were able to manage [Vanier’s] best players and produce some very good attacking rugby when we had the ball,” coach Marius Felix said.

Mckenna Haz and Danika Elias were Brentwood’s top players in the first half.

“I was even more impressed by our younger group, who learned a lot about how to compete in a competitive environment,” Felix added.

Brentwood was scheduled to play Shawnigan Lake School on Thursday afternoon.
