RUGBY SEVENS EXTENDS WIN STREAK TO 17

MARKHAM, Ont – The Humber rugby sevens team (9-0, 1st OCAA) extended its win streak to 17 straight matches after sweeping through the third tournament of the season.

Three tries from Christina Branch in game one led the Hawks to a 44-0 win over Mohawk College (2-8, 9th OCAA).  Cheyenne De Luca added two tries of her own, while Emily Maclean, Deandra Medford, and Hayley O'Donoghue each had a try.

Humber improves to 2-0 against the Mountaineers this season, outscoring Mohawk 80-0.

HUMBER 28, FLEMING 17
Meeting for the first time in rugby sevens, Fleming College (6-3, 2nd OCAA) had a chance at handing the Hawks their first loss of the season.  The Knights scored 17 first-half points, the most by any team so far this season, and led at half 17-7.
