ARFC September 23 Report
Div 1 Women:
The Abbotsford women played SFU in the opening match of a full ARFC club day this Saturday at Exhibition Park. Abbotsford's roster saw a wealth of young faces and a full bench of substitutes, which proved valuable for the physical match up. The back-and-forth first half had Abbotsford riddled with penalties, sending them backwards, and allowing SFU over the line 4 times.
Abbotsford's forwards rallied against a tough Simon Fraser pack and turned things around in the second half. The fiery Abbotsford backline sliced through SFU, scoring try after try to seal the game in the last 30 minutes. Outside centre Natalie Teteris delivered a powerful 5 tries in her 80 minutes, while Captain Chelsea Fowler touched down 4 and rookie Vivianna Johnson lit up the right wing with a hat trick in her 40 minutes. The final score favoured Abbotsford 78-29. Next weekend the ladies travel to Nanaimo to face the Hornets.
Chelsea Fowler - 4
Natalie Teteris - 5
Vivianna Johnson - 3
Chelsea Fowler - 9

Match Reports from Saturday September 16th from Tyler Adams and Emily Skillings
On Saturday, the ARFC Division 2 Men travelled north of the Fraser for an encounter with the students with SFU. The ARFC Division 1 game was rescheduled for Dec 16 with Langley as both clubs had games in multiple locations, forcing a rescheduling early in the season. Hopefully the BCRU, Sub Unions and Clubs can come to an understanding to craft a better schedule for all involved. Onto the action.
