As playoffs approach Fleming seems poised to receive a playoff berth, currently sitting in 7th in the OCAA East, the last playoff spot, up 0.5 games on the Centennial Colts.

“We’re hoping to make a strong push and try to get into the 5th or 6th spot. We’re going to try to work our way up the ranks as much as we can to try and get ourselves a more advantageous playoff match-up.” Ross said of his team’s expectations for 2nd semester.

Trent (2) went on to take the tournament over George Brown by a score of 3-0 (25-22, 25-18, 25-22).

We are very fortunate to have such a passionate team who supported each other during practice, and it really shinned during the Sheridan meet. Our team understands our goals and the dedication needed to reach their goals. We (the coaching staff) are proud of the team’s commitment to their sport and their drive for results.”

Peterborough, ON: Today the Fleming Knights’ varsity men’s rugby team hosted the Loyalist Lancers at the Fleming Sports Complex. The Knights, coming off a season opening loss to the Algonquin Thunder, bounced back easily defeating the Lancers by a score of 51-5.

The Knights came ready to play from the first whistle as they scored their first try within minutes of kick off, courtesy of #13 Weldon Spears (Port Hope, ON). Spears had an outstanding game scoring two tries in the match. The Knights also had a big night from #15 Kai Lucas-Dumolo (Solihull, England) who had a try and three successful converts.

Contrary to their last match, the Knights played a much more solid defensive game which was a match to their high performing offence as they held Loyalist Lancers to a single try in the match. 

The Knights look ahead to September 23rd as they visit the Algonquin College to re-challenge the Thunder.

Quick Look at the Knights
