Aldergrove Secondary's Lea Verheyden is tackled by Walnut Grove player in girls rugby action April 7 at ACSS. The visitors took a 22-0 win.

Rugby girls take a beating

Poor tackling by Aldergrove Secondary rugby girls took its toll in the first half as Walnut Grove went up three tries to zero after 20 minutes.

However, for the last 10 minutes of the first half and then most of the second half the momentum shifted to ACSS.

Aldergrove crossed the line twice but could not ground the ball. Aldergrove’s backs were begging for the ball Walnut Grove’s 2-metre line with a 3-on-1 overlap, but a poor decision cost them a certain try.

Strong games were enjoyed by Rosa Hoang, Danielle Dorish, GInger Broatch.

Ashley Kazakoff and Jen Zanella made solid contributions in the forwards. In the backs, Brittany McKay made a few try saving tackles and Toria Aslin played a steady game.

Walnut Grove scored near the very end of the game as Aldergrove’s lack of commitment to the tackle reared its ugly head again.
