Tough way to end the season for Mavs

Published on Tuesday, 13 September 2022 07:48

It was a season of streaks for the Dauphin Mavericks.

The local men’s rugby team started the year with four straight losses and followed that with four straight wins.

The Mavericks ended the season with another four losses in a row, the last three coming this past weekend in Winnipeg.

The Mavericks dropped a 37-17 decision to the league-leading Wombats, Saturday afternoon then lost 38-17 to the Saracens in the early evening. On Sunday, the Wanderers were awarded a 20-0 win after the Mavericks forfeited the game, dropping Dauphin’s record to 4-8.

Jeff Zeiler, Willi Budzinski and Shawn Sarkonak each scored tries in the first game and Nick Searle had three tries in the second game. Converts were kicked by Willi Budzinski and Jordan Campbell.

Mavericks president Codi Harrigan was pleased with the team’s play, noting they opened the scoring against the Wombats.
