WOLFPACK DOWN TYEE IN OPENER
- Submitted by
With the 2012 Canadian Rugby Championship season opening this past weekend,  fans got the chance to see a brand new rivalry begin out west, as the season opened with the Prairie Wolf Pack taking on brand new Pacific Tyee, playing out of Langford, BC, at Calgary Rugby Park in Calgary, AB on Saturday.

The match saw the Wolf Pack take the lead early on.  With trys from Ian Schoults, Gordon McRorie and Nick Blevins, the Wolf Pack were up 19-0 half way through the first half.  The story of the game would be Christian Wolff, who would end the game with seven completed conversions.  The Tyee would push back during the first half, with a try from starting #15 Conrad Rybkowski, which was converted by Patrick Kay, one of two on the night for Kay. The Wolf Pack's Co-Captain Nick Belvins would respond, however, followed up by Christian Wolff punching in a try of his own to finish off the half.

The second half would again see the Wolf Pack put on a offensive strong performance with try from Mozac Samson, a second try for Ian Schoults, two tries from Clay Panga and James Buchanan's try would cap off the game for the hungry Wolf Pack.  The Tyee never gave up in the second however, as both Matt Yanagiya and Brodie Henderson would put tries up on the board.

When the final whistle was blown, the Prairie Wolf Pack came out on top of the season opener against the Pacific Tyee by a final score of 64-19.

With both squads trying to shake off a bit of rust in the first match of the season, we expect to see much more from this new western rivalry as the two teams will again go head to head this Saturday, August 25th at Calgary Rugby Park for a rematch that kicks off at 6:30pm MST.

In other action this weekend, the Rock will travel to Oakville, Ontario where both the Rock and the Ontario Blues will look to open their seasons with a win, kick off at 4:30pm EST.
