The scoreboard still shows it as a blowout, but the Crescent Heights girls rugby team was able to find some positives in Thursday’s 75-12 loss in Vulcan.

Head coach Amber Donnelly expounded on her team’s growing skill set, noting “spirits are high.”

“These girls played the hardest we have seen them play this season,” she wrote in an email to the News. “Their passing of the ball was more controlled and communication was key.”

Celest Olson and Lauren McLean each had tries, with Dee-anna Seitz adding a conversion kick in the defeat. Donnelly singled out Kennedy Robertson for a notable tackle and both Olson and Geneva Slezinsky for initiating mauls after Vulcan had the ball past the try line, trying to stop them from downing it for points.

“We have grown so much this year,” she added.

Crescent Heights, which is really an amalgamation of players from all local high schools, plays Taber on Tuesday and winds up with a tournament in Taber the following Saturday.
