The MIRFC Mens teams played their last games of the regular season against perennial foes Saint-Anne De Bellevue RFC and with all three grades winning their respective matches.
Coach Baille’s comments:
outstanding work today – you truly represented what this club is about – working for one another and getting the job done one task at a time. What had to be accomplished was and now we move one step closer to where we want to be when all the cards have been played.
Third grade – excellent effort, always competing at each and every breakdown and getting a good win to finish the season. – Final score 13-10 for Montreal Irish III
Second grade – up against it with a win guaranteeing a bye and home field semi final and you boys stepped forward and ensured that was the case. – Final score 31-29 for Montreal Irish II
First grade – an absolutely dominant second half of rugby, the like of which we are constantly capable of producing and always looking for was put in and ensured a minor for us – Final Score 41-13 for Montreal Irish Prems
Our club President Bob Meunier also had a few words for the Club on ending their regular season.
“Another great season from everyone. Thanks to our coaches who have again maintain and even raise our level of play. It was a tough year for our 3rds that were up a division this year. That said I believe the team have improve and will surprise next year. The women are under reconstruction. Tough year for them also. I have full confidence in their leadership group. Next year will be a much better year.”
MIRFC Club commits to the injured
Also this weekend a couple of fundraisers were had to help Irish players who had sustained injuries over the course of the season. A Toothfairy themed fundraiser was held for player Leanna to help cover her cost of dental work and a 50-50 draw for injured players amongst them Alex and Delwyn. The winners of the draw, including 2 SABRFC players, generously donated back the winnings to the cause.
– Since the Prems and Reserve have a bye week, the SEMI final game will take place, unusually on SUNDAY, August 24th. Show support for the green at Saint-julie on that day.
– Again this year the MIRFC will be hosting the finals on the grounds of Saint-Julie on Saturday September 6th (unless schedule changed). This means that from dawn to dusk around 12+ games of rugby will be played. Volunteers are always needed (bbq, concessions, parking, grounds keeping, etc.) Please communicate with Marie C. Valderrama if you can volunteer. If you do not have her contact please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
