It was a close win for the Elk Valley Rugby Football Club on Saturday.

The boys dominated the field during the first half of the game, coming out at half time with a 17-3 score, but the Cranbrook Rocky Mountain Rogues took charge in the final minutes of the game.

“For them to come back in the last five minutes was really good on their behalf,” Elk Valley Bulls captain Pete Dudman said.

The Bulls made it out of the game with a final score of 17-15, a win they needed to stay alive this season.

“It’s a massive relief and it was a much needed win,” Dudman said.

“The morale within the team has definitely taken a huge boost from it.”

And it’s confidence the Bulls will need to bring to their next game against the Nelson Grizzlies.

On May 31, the Grizzlies Rugby Club defeated the Bulls with a 26-7 win.

Dudman said the team has to take more possession over the ball if they want to beat the Grizzlies out in Sparwood on Saturday.

The Coal Miner Days game will determine whether or not the Elk Valley Rugby team makes it to the finals.
