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.

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.
