Rain and mud wasn't slowing down Fort High.
The Fort High Sting senior girls rugby team battled through the elements to defeat Salisbury Composite High School 19-12 on Thursday (May 10).
"We practiced all week on maintaining the ball and eventually you're going to wear them down," said head coach Bryan Cox.
Brooklyn Reid had two tries, while Cassandra Simmons added another.
"In the last part of the game the girls figured out that the more we controlled the ball the less opportunity they would have to score. And we kept the ball under control for that last quarter," added Cox.
Next up in Metro League play for Fort High (1-1) will be ME Lazerte (1-1) at the Jubilee Recreation Centre Rugby Field on Monday (May 14).
