Lane prepares to play for the ball in the scrum

The Lane Tech Girls Rugby Team defeated rival Taft High School by a score of 19-10 in the first round of the playoffs.

After a tie game at halftime, 5-5, freshman Roisin Gilbert found room on the outside of the scrum. Gilbert ran for 50 yards untouched to score the try, bringing the score to 10-5. Junior Maura Gilbert kicks the extra points. Lane up 12-5.

After a scrum, the ball is picked up by freshman Nia Muhammed. She found the outside of the scrum and ran past the entire Taft team to be tackled in the In-Goal Area where Muhammed touched the ball to score the try. Bringing the score to 17-5.

Maura Gilbert kicks the extra points. Lane up 19-5

After a successful Taft score and Taft bringing the ball all the way to the Goal Line, Lane has a successful defensive stop and prevents Taft from adding any more points to the score.

Following the defensive stop, the referee called the game due to lightning.

With that win, Lane has moved on to the next round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

    The opening picture captioned “Roisin Gilbert successfully tackling Taft player…” is miswritten. The tackler is Brianna Galvin, not Roisin Gilbert.
