On a wet and cool Wednesday last week the Aldergrove Junior Boys rugby team took one step closer to reclaiming the Langley District Shield with a win over D.W. Poppy. The game was a back and forth affair with many big hits and impressive runs made by both teams, however, the playing conditions helped to stall many promising drives.

The Junior Totems were able to work the ball well across the field and score two identical tries in the corner off of an impressive sequence of plays. Kole Perras was able to score his first try of the season powering his way through the Poppy defence, giving the Totems a 17-3 halftime lead. The second half became more of a defensive struggle with both teams making timely tackles to thwart any potential scoring chances, however, Tristan Buchner was able to pick up a loose ball off a broken play and dive in for the final try of the game, giving the Totems a 22-3 victory. The team will now host Mountain Secondary on Wednesday to determine who will win the Langley Shield.

Crunch of the game went to newbie Richard Swann laying down a couple of massive hits on the hard running Redhawks.
