Titans senior squads back in action this Saturday

Three out of four ain’t bad for the Red Deer Titans Rugby club.

The Under 18 Boys, the 1st and 3rd Division Senior Men’s squads, as well as the Senior Ladies team were all in action down at Titans Rugby Park this past weekend.

In the U18 boys tilt, it was a back and forth affair, with Jake Curtis nailing a 25 metre penalty goal on the final play of the game to give Red Deer a 25-22 win over the Calgary Irish.

Byron Grande had two tries, while Nathan Tarling and Mike Soley added one try each.

Connor Borle chipped in with a conversion for the U18 boys, who see their record improve to three wins and two losses.

The 1st Division men’s squad was on the pitch against the Calgary Saracens, and walked away with a 52-19 win over the visitors from the south.

Andrew Herbert and Steven Holmes scored a pair of tries each, with Bradley Reeves, Andy Peters and Wade Moore adding one try a piece.

Moore also added to the final score with three penalty goals and four conversions.

In the women’s game, the ladies found themselves trailing Lethbridge 21-14 at the half, but were able to hold the Southern Albertans off the score sheet in the second half in a 41-21 win.

Melissa Wyntjes and Kayla Ormond tallied two tries each, with single tries being scored by Monica Hehli, Chelsey Clifford, and Aly Bowd.

Bowd also kicked two conversions for the 7-3 Titans, who handed Lethbridge its first loss of the season.

The 3rd Division men’s team was the only Titans squad to lose on the weekend, running into an undefeated Okotoks club.

Bill Bowd accounted for all the scoring for Red Deer, with a try and a conversion, in a 39-7 loss to the Lions.

With the loss, the Thirds’ record falls to four wins, four losses and one tie.

Next up for the U18 Boys is the Alberta Summer Games, which kicked off on Monday.

Ivan Allier, Karel Beijer, Gradyn Bowd, Seth Hallman, Connor Leduc, Ryan MacLellan, Kyle Pickett, and Caleb Von Albedyhll will join Borle, Grande, Tarling and Curtis in representing Zone 4 in Peace River.

Central Alberta natives Broden Cline, Colin Robinson and Clayton Hempel will suit up for Zone 8, which didn’t have enough players to field a team for the Games, while Mackenzie Clews joining the Zone 6 squad.

On the girl’s side, Zone 4 is fielding two teams, as one of the zones wasn’t able to muster up enough players.

Rimbey natives Jalaine Anderson, Jennifer Anderson, Bernadette Weiss, and Christy Weiss are on the roster for team 4A, along with Courtney Hueppelsheuser, Ashley Maze, Devan Mercereau, Jen Peturson, and Jenn Ronnie from Red Deer.

Denise Holt, of Lacombe, Olds native Taylor Lappage and Amber Goossens of Rocky Mountain House round out the 4A line up.

Team 4B includes Cassandra Bargholz, Bailey England, Sophie Falls, and Dacey Livingstone of Red Deer.

Laramie Hollingsworth and Janessa Matthew of Rimbey are also on the 4B squad, as are Megan Berlinguette of Olds and Lacombe’s Madison Hatch.

All three Titans senior squads, meanwhile, are back in action this Saturday against the Calgary Saints at Titans Rugby Park.

The day has been set aside as a tribute to former Titan Michaud Favre, who passed away tragically last winter.

A foundation has been established in Favre’s name to support junior players from Central Alberta who have made the Alberta Team in their age group and are taking part in National or World Championships.

Shannon Court, a former Titans standout who is currently training in Ottawa with the Canadian University Women’s Sevens team in advance of next week’s Worlds University Women’s Sevens Championship in Portugal, is one of the recipients of funding through the Foundation.
