The King’s-Edgehill Highlanders swept the School Sport Nova Scotia boys’ and girls’ rugby championships in Windsor on Saturday.

Nate Montgomery scored two tries and Justin Day added two conversions and three penalty kicks in a 28-5 win over Northumberland in the boys’ championship game. Yuta Takahashi added a try for the KES while Brennan Dalton had the try for Northumberland.

While the win was a team effort, coach Jason Verryn-Stuart said both Day and Joe MacLean were key contributers to the win.

“Justin Day scored most of our points with absolutely brilliant kicking,” said Verryn-Stuart. “But Northumberland had very, very powerful offence and we had to shut it down if we wanted to win this game. So, the defence is really what characterized this win and Joe was our best defensive player today.”

Heidi Harvey and Ava Shearer each scored a pair of tries and Jill Griffith had five conversions as King’s-Edgehill dropped the Citadel Phoenix 60-22 to earn the girls’ banner. Carrington George, Elizabeth Hardy, Rhya Martinello, Roh Hendsbee, Sarah Hardy and Gala Holm added tries in the victory.

Charlotte Bains, Kayleigh Bowes has tries for the Phoenix and Kate MacDonald a conversion.

King’s-Edgehill coach Rory Campbell was pleased with the efforets of his team.

For graduating players Gala Holme and Maya Faucher it was a perfect ending to their high school careers.

“I think that this was the perfect way for us to end our high school career,” said Holme, who will play varsity rugby at Western University next year. “A highlight from the game for me was one of our first tries in the first half when we got the ball out to the wings and there was just a lot of support from the back and that’s something I know they’ve been working on all season so to see it executed in our final game was really special.”

“Gala and I have been playing on the team for four and five years and we’ve never gotten the chance to even come to provincials,” said Faucher, who has committed to St. Francis Xavier next year. “So, I think it was a really awesome way to finish off and to even get to provincials, but then to win, it’s really something really special.”

Nick Ferguson scored two tries and three conversions as Bay View downed C.P. Allen 61-24 in the boys’ consolation game. Dawson MacKay and Connor Howard added a pair of tries while singles went to Dustin MacDonald, Nick Gushue, Tim Robinson and Nate Cameron. Jacob Chaffey, Jack Lethbridge, Will Steffer had C.P. Allen tries.

Sam Reid scored six tries and Sarah Gunn had 12conversions as Northumberland dropped Lockview 108-20 in the girls’ consolation game. Lucy Goodwin, Kiara Allen and Eiidih Cameron each added two tries while singles went to Emma MacLeod, Kristen Cahoon, Chloe Stroud and Brooke Reid. Charlotte Hilton had three tries and Jaimie Rockwell one for Lockview.
