Mud­men tally per­fect week­end

P.E.I. goes 2-0 in Nova Sco­tia se­nior rugby play over the week­end

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The Hunter’s Ale House Mud­men rugby club teams were per­fect in the Nova Sco­tia Se­nior Men’s Rugby League last week­end.

The Mud­men A squad downed the Saint John Tro­jans 41-26 in Elite Di­vi­sion ac­tion Satur­day, and the Mud­men B team gained a for­feit win over the Hal­i­fax Tars on Sun­day.

On Satur­day in Saint John, N.B., Char­lie Wad­dell led the Mud­men with three trys while Mike Deighan’s kick­ing was on point all day.

Phil Gal­lant, long­time Mud­men player and or­ga­nizer, cred­ited much of the vic­tory to younger play­ers filling in for banged-up vet­er­ans.

“A lot of great young play­ers are step­ping up in key roles while a lot of play­ers are re­cov­er­ing,” said Gal­lant.

Adam Fitz­patrick’s sti­fling de­fence and strong run­ning earned him the Mud­men manof-the-match award.

The Mud­men re­turn to the pitch on Satur­day, July 29, when the A Di­vi­sion team trav­els to Nova Sco­tia for a bat­tle against Wind­sor (3 p.m.), and the B Di­vi­sion squad hosts Eastern Shore. Game time is 1 p.m. at Co-op Field in Char­lot­te­town.

The Char­lot­te­town Rugby Foot­ball Club also re­sumes its Nova Sco­tia Se­nior Women’s Rugby League sea­son af­ter three weeks off in a Tier A tus­sle ver­sus the Val­ley Bull­dogs.

Kick­off at Co-op is 3 p.m.
