The Strathmore Spartans Girls Rugby Team had their first exhibition game of the year.  It was sunny but chilly Friday afternoon when the local girls team took on the Pincher Creek Hawks. 

The ground was still frozen and quite hard on the game day, so each tackle and takedown was that much more jarring to the players.  The Strathmore girls team showed some real grit and pushed forward to a 32-17 victory over Pincher Creek. 

The next game for the Girls Rugby team will be April 11 at 5 p.m. followed by the Boys game at 6:30 p.m. at Strathmore High School field.
