Towhees have a shot at ninth place at B.C. AAA rugby tourney

The G.P. Vanier Towhees are in pursuit of a ninth-place finish at the B.C. Secondary School Rugby Union AAA boys provincial championships.

A first round loss May 24 (36-12 to #10 seed Carson Graham) dropped the #7 Towhees to the consolation side of the draw.

When the 16-team tourney resumed May 28 in Abbotsford, the Towhees defeated #15 Semiahmoo 16-8. That set up a Thursday, 3 p.m. meeting with #11 Handsworth.

The winner of that game advances to Saturday's 1 p.m. game to decide ninth and 10th place. They will play the winner of #12 Lord Tweedsmuir vs. #8 Kelowna.

The championship game goes 4 p.m. Saturday and will feature the winner of #3 Oak Bay vs. #2 St. George's and #5 Lord Byng vs. #1 Shawnigan Lake.
