Senior Women Week 3 Update

The 2-0 Titans Women’s team were in for a huge battle against the 2-0 Lethbridge Rugby Club this weekend with both teams loaded up with talented players. The game was action packed with the teams trading tries and the lead throughout the first half. The second half spun in the Titans direction as they quickly built a 21-point lead, however Lethbridge refused to quit as they clawed their way back in front 55-51 with just a couple minutes remaining in the game. The Titans weren’t done however, regaining control of the ball on a lineout steal around half. The team then went six phases with Rachel Sever moving the ball quickly from the ruck until Emma Newton executed a perfect offload to the speedy Leah Brunner who wasn’t going to be denied scoring the game winning try!! The game ended 58-55 in favor of the Titans, however the real winner were the spectators who, despite “interpretive” rules, were treated to a spectacular and action pack game that included two teams loaded with talent from University, Provincial and National programs. It was an amazing display of skill, toughness, and composure by both teams. The two teams won’t have to wait long to battle again as the rematch is slated for this Saturday in Lethbridge. Titan’s Forward of the Game was Sierra Laye, who was brilliant at hooker for the day, showing amazing ball handling skills, footwork and tackling. Back of the Game was Erin McFadden who put on a fantastic show of skill and defence facing off against her “University of Lethbridge Pronghorn” teammates. After leaving the Lethbridge team battered...

Senior Women Week 2 Update

The Red Deer Titans Senior Women’s rugby team had a successful home opener defeating the Calgary Rams 68-5 at the Titans Rugby Park. The Titans ladies started and finished strong putting up almost a point a minute throughout the game but undoubtedly their major success of the evening was rostering a full 25 players (plus reserves) for the game. The game saw tries from eight different players but it was clear that all 25 players made a significant impact throughout it. Prop Isebel St. Pierre was chosen as “Forward of the Game” for her relentless and consistent performance on the field. Center Emma Newton was chosen as “Back of the Game” for her complete effort of defence, ball distribution and strong running lines (and she converted 4 kicks). Rams choose 8-man Courtney Holtkamp after she produced seemingly endless punishing runs during the game. Unfortunately, Holtkamp cap the night off with the “W” during the traditional post game “Chugging Competition” against the Rams player of the game and her opposite number 8. The team also attempted a world record in “Penalties during a Rugby Match” however came up just short. Prop Haley Khatib however wasn’t going to be denied setting herself a personal best of possibly eight penalties (video review still to confirm). Overall it was a great game for the Titans Women and a great start to the season after two strong wins. They played with a lot of energy and stayed positive throughout the game….and kept their composure when necessary. The women host Lethbridge next on June 2 in what looks to be a great club day of...
