BC Edges EIRA in V7s Final

The BC Elite Youth 7s Gold team edged the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy 7s team 31-26 to win the Victoria International 7s.

EIRA led early in the game, fell behind 26-14, but tied the game up late to make it 26-26 at the end of the second ten-minute half. 

However, BC scored in OT to win.

BC Gold finished the tournament 5-0. In that run, they allowed 19 points by the first four opponents, and 26 points by EIRA.

EIRA, meanwhile, ended the tournament 4-1, scoring 130 points and allowing 74, more than half of those points in the semis and final.

BC Blue took 3rd, and the Utah Lions took the Plate.

In the U18 Open Division, BC Red defeated the Celtic Barbarians for 1st, while the Utah Cannibals defeated the Utah Lions 24-7 for 3rd. The Utah Cannibals took 1st in the Boys U16 Open Division, defeating White Rock II, and the Thunder, and then White Rock I in the semis, before silencing the Thunder 22-7 in the final.
