Saturday December 2, 2017
L'équipe de Rugby féminin des Gee-Gees au tournoi de rugby à 7
Greg Mason
For the first time the uOttawa Gee-Gees hosted a rugby 7’s tournament at the Lees dome. Saturday’s event was the first stop on a four-tournament circuit for the 2017-18 season, with a points champion declared at the final. Along with the host Gee-Gees, five other teams competed in the tournament; Laval, Queen’s, Concordia, Montreal, and Carleton.
The Gee-Gees A Team opened up the series circuit with a 2-0-1 record, while the B team finished with a record of 1-1-1. Both Gee-Gees teams started the day off with ties at 15 all, the A team competing against Carleton and the B team facing Laval.
The Gee-Gees A team finished off the day with two convincing wins, the first was against Concordia which they won 20-5, and the second against Montreal where they won 30-10.
The Gee-Gees B team faced Queen’s in their second match of the day where they lost a tough battle by a score of 25-15. The team finished off their day and the last game of the tournament against the Carleton Ravens where they won decisively by a score of 35-10. 
The Gee-Gees will look to improve on this weekend’s performance when they head to Kingston on January 14 for the next stage of the circuit.
