Pitch fever at Mount Baker Secondary

Mount Baker Secondary Wild hosted rugby tournament action Thursday afternoon in Cranbrook

Mount Baker Secondary School played host to senior boys, junior boys and girls rugby Thursday, with teams visiting from Castlegar (Stanley Humphries Secondary), Kimberley (Selkirk Secondary), Nelson (L.V. Rogers Secondary) and Trail (J.L. Crowe Secondary).

From line-outs to scrums, there was plenty of rough-housing and heavy-hitting chaos out on the pitches.

The Mount Baker Wild senior boys squad battled valiantly in a back-and-forth affair with Stanley Humphries, but ultimately fell by a 14-10 final to open the festivities early Thursday afternoon.

Results from the rest of the day were unavailable before print deadline.
