Rustlers head to Saratoga Cup

The Northern Champion Williams Lake Rustlers Rugby Football Club will be looking to bring home the Saratoga Cup.

The Northern Champion Williams Lake Rustlers Rugby Football Club will be looking to bring home the Saratoga Cup provincial championship this weekend from Penticton.

Action takes place at McNicoll Park Oval Saturday and Sunday (third-place game at 9 a.m., with the final at 11 a.m.).

Saturday features semifinal games between the Penticton Harlequins and the Rustlers at 11 a.m., then Elk Valley (Kootenay champs) faces Kelowna (Lower Mainland) at 1 p.m.

In 2013 the Rustlers finished third in the province at the tournament, falling only to the Brit Lions of Delta.

The Rustlers finished the regular season with a three-win, one-loss record beating the Terrace Northmen once and the Prince George Gnats twice.

Their only loss came at the hands of the Northmen during an away tilt.

The 3-1 record qualified the team for the Saratoga Cup this weekend.
