It was the final five minutes of the game. The coaches made some honourable substitutions, making sure that all of the departing 18 year olds could be united, on pitch #1 at Calgary Rugby Park. A few more tackles, one last scrum and then, a celebration together as the final whistle blew. The Calgary Canucks had secured another Calgary City rugby Championships, for some of them the fourth in four seasons.

In a well-played, competitive game, the Canucks came out winners with five tries to one against the Okotoks Lions. Final score 33:7. Too bad, Alberta Rugby, that there isn’t a Provincial Championship this season.
