Yesterday the senior boys rugby team, had their first game of the season at our home field, against Langley. With a big crowd out to watch the game, everyone was excited with high spirits. The moment the game began it was clear that Langley didn't have a chance at winning against SD. Defence did an outstanding job ending the game with a shut out! While Offence managed to get around the other teams defence multiple times, with ease. Everybody did an exceptional job and had the perfect game to start the season, keep it up boys!

At half time DSS was up 22-13 and although the SD girls gave it their all, in the second half, they didn't manage to catch up. Better luck next time girls!
