In a championship match where the home team came out with a clear intention to put their mark on the game early and not let off, the Enfield RFC women overcame a mid-season loss to their opponents, the Dartmouth PigDogs, and cruised to a convincing 71-31 victory in front of a very loud Enfield crowd.  Enfield captain Adrienne MacDonald noted that lopsided loss to Dartmouth in July was the motivation the Enfield women needed to enter the closing weeks of the season with a fresh focus and intensity, changing their gameplan considerably in the weeks leading to the final.


Straight from kickoff Enfield showed a wide attacking flair getting ball runners into space and keeping the ball alive through the outside channels.  Tries came early and often through Amy Fraser, Daniela Mayo (2), Adrienne MacDonald (3), Megan Sullivan (2), Bryony Taylor (2), and Saralynne Knockwood.  Mayo came good with 8 conversions, a few of them nearly from the Lion’s Den parking lot.  Full credit to the PigDogs, who continued to put in the hard graft on defense throughout the match and looked to threaten playing the spoiler in the quarter after halftime.  Dartmouth sparked 20 points onto the scoreboard, largely through the evasive running and kickchase of fullback Breanna Allison.  Enfield found the same intensity that they started the match with in the final quarter, putting the game out of reach on offense and closing it out with a solid, flat line of defending.  Coach Drew Hutt was thrilled with the result, particularly through the use of the entire bench, “which displayed the dynamic we had all year of some added depth to the squad.  It really showed it was a full team victory.”

The club is extremely proud of the girls for putting on such a comprehensive showing in a championship game, and the girls would like to thank coach Drew Hutt for his hard work and belief as well as Matt MacNeil and Mark Sweeney for helping adjust tactics toward the end of the year.  The girls would also like to thank the club and club supporters for their backing throughout the season and on the day.

From Rugby Nova Scotia President Geno Carew:

This Friday, August 7th, will be the final men's Keltics game of the season. The senior men take on Quebec after a 15-9 win last weekend in Montreal. This is a two game test series with the winner having most aggregate of points over the two games.

The Senior Mens team has had their most successful season in 15 years with wins over Quebec and the Newfoundland Rock.  We would like to reach out to all club teams to help support the Keltics in another victory. The game will be held at The Wanderers Grounds at 7:00pm with our U18 Mens team as curtain raiser against NB at 5PM.

We will be celebrating all of the Keltics achievements including gold medals and capped players over this past season and we hope to see you there!

Geno Carew

Also, the Enfield RFC would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of its members who have been involved in Provincial and Regional rugby programs during the 2015 season.  The accomplishments of our athletes and these programs has been awesome this year and we are very proud of everyone involved!

Enfield RFC Weekend Update/Preview

E-mail Print PDF

Congratulations to long standing Enfield RFC members Fred and Courtney on their lovely wedding last weekend!  The two were all smiles, all day during the ceremony and reception and the club would like to wish them nothing but the best!  It was also great to see some Enfield RFC faces from the past (Quadz, Brad, and Chelsea) along with the rest of the club groomsmen (Matty, Shawn, Liam, Kyle) looking sharp.


The happy couple (minus one dog...I tried)

In other Enfield RFC news, the actual rugby season gets under way this weekend!  The Enfield RFC men's and women's teams are in action, with the Enfield RFC Division I men travelling to St. John to take on the Trojans as a part of the Maritime Elite league on Saturday, while the Enfield RFC women's Division I team will play Pictou County in their season opener at the Lion's Den in Enfield in a rematch of last season's hotly contested championship game.  It will be action you certainly won't want to miss!

Also, a huge congrats to the HERH Tigers Girls rugby team and coach Ashley Ettinger for winning the NSSAF Div II Rugby Provincial Championships in Cape Breton in double overtime last weekend!  The girls beat Glace Bay, Eastern Shore and finally Central Kings to hoist the provincial banner.  Well done ladies!
