The Terry Fox Ravens took on the Gleneagle Talons for first place in the Fraser Valley AAA high school rugby west division.
The rivalry between the two squads is heated and it didn't take long for emotions to run high in the back and forth affair.
Fox pressed early and were rewarded with a try from Sean Stewart to put the team up 5-0, however the Talons pressed back with a try of their own to make it 7-5. The Talons extended the lead on a brilliant effort in the second half to make it 12-5.
Fox pushed back and came close to evening the score on several occasions, but the Talons were able to hold off the Ravens and secure the victory.
"All credit to Gleneagle for the spirited play" said assistant coach Jorge Knizek. "They earned the victory and we look forward to a chance to meet them again in the playoffs."
Both the Talons and the Ravens will prepare for sudden death Fraser Valley playoffs, which will begin next week.
The Ravens will take on Sardis secondary on Tuesday in the quarterfinals, while Gleneagle gets a bye in the first round and will wait for a semi-final opponents between Clayton Heights and Semiahmoo.
