In their home opener at Justin Chiu Stadium, the Trent University Excalibur women’s rugby team edged the Toronto Varsity Blues 27-26 for the victory!

The Excalibur came out of the gate strong leading 17-0 after the 1st half with tries by Maddy Howells, Abby Monkman, and captain Reagan MacDonald.

In the 2nd half, as the Varsity Blues began to push back, Maddy Howells added her second try of the game, before Kristy Metzger fought her way through a sea of blue and crossed the end line for the winning try.

The Excalibur’s record now improves to 2-1 with their final regular season game upcoming next Saturday, September 30th back at home vs the Laurier Golden Hawks. It is a Head of the Trent game you do not want to miss!
