After a delay to start their season, the Trent Excalibur men’s rugby finally got to open their season. The result, however, was not what they hoped for as they fell to the Seneca Sting 34-6 in front of 200 fans at Justin Chiu Stadium on Sunday.
Seneca opened the scoring, and never trailed. Thanks to two penalty goals by Trent captain Graham Abbot, the Excalibur got as close as 10-6, but as the injuries piled up and both teams fitness was put to the test, Seneca was able to pull away and secure the victory.
Trent will look to rebound when they host the Humber Hawks at 3 pm on October 1. The game will be part of the Head of the Trent festivities. For a full schedule of the weekend’s events visit www.trentvarsity.ca
