Pandas finish third in second Rugby 7s tournament

Pandas earn two more wins on Sunday; finish tournament with 4-2 record

By UFV Communications on February 11, 2018

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – The Victoria Vikes continued their dominance of the Canada West Women's Sevens Series, going a perfect 6-0 en route to the tourney title at the second stop on the circuit, hosted by the University of the Fraser Valley.

Playing under sunny skies at MRC Sports Complex on Sunday, the Vikes capped their run to the title with victories over the UBC Thunderbirds (31-7), UFV Cascades (57-0) and Lethbridge Pronghorns (21-19). Their overall record on the sevens series this season is 12-0, and they take a comfortable lead in the aggregate points standings into the series finale, which they'll host Feb. 24-25.

DAY 1 RECAP

Finishing second through seventh, respectively, were the Calgary Dinos (4-2), Alberta Pandas (4-2), Lethbridge Pronghorns (3-3), UBC Thunderbirds (3-3), UFV Cascades (1-5) and Thompson Rivers WolfPack (0-6). Ties are broken based on head-to-head results.

The Pronghorns had accrued a flawless 3-0 record on Saturday, but dropped all three of their Sunday games to slip to fourth place. Their rivals from Alberta, the Dinos and Pandas, both picked up a pair of wins on Sunday – including head-to-head triumphs over the Pronghorns – to overhaul them in the tourney standings.

The tournament marked the first home event for the Cascades, who are in their second season of Canada West rugby sevens competition. They earned their first-ever win over newcomer TRU on Saturday.

In the overall standings, the Vikes (20 points) hold the lead, with Calgary (14) and Lethbridge (12) their closest pursuers.
