Crusaders U14 Lancers bring home the Cup

Cru Lancers win the U14 Premiership League and the Provincial Championship.

On Sunday 28th August 2016, the U14 Lancers took on league rivals Brantford for the Ontario Provincial Championship game. In our league games, both teams had won their home games against each other. The two team are at the top of the league tables and the games were fiercely contested.

The team had worked hard to prepare for this championship game and the training paid off with early success in the first half with Ryan Hasselfeldt driving over the line to score. The Crusaders dominated scrums and open play and shortly soon after the first score captain Liam Bowman ran around Brandford’s defense to score under the posts. Sean Snyman easily kicked the conversion to make the score 12:0. Brantford rallied and came back strongly but the Cru defense was solid, stopping all attacks. Even with 14 players for the last 8 minutes of the game (due to a questionable yellow card), the Lancers held on to win a hard fought 12:0 victory and reclaim the provincial cup for the 6th year running.
