BARRIE, Ont. - The Georgian Grizzlies men's rugby team kicked off their 2017 OCAA regular season by hosting the visiting Mohawk Mountaineers on Sunday at the Georgian Sports Field in Barrie.

The Grizzlies impressed from start to finish as they ran away with a 92-0 victory.

Kirk Addai Sarfo (Bradford) led the charge leading the team with three tries while last year's OCAA men's rugby player of the year Lucas Cunningham (Bradford) had two tries in the second half.

Also scoring twice for Georgian was returning wing Jordan Henstra (Barrie) and rookie Matthew Comeau (Lindsay).

Jake Boulding (Barrie), Alan Bushey (Barrie), Jordan Carppi (Lindsay), Henry Do (Brampton), Nana Ntim (Bradford), Mark Rodman (Minesing) and Liam Wilson (Orillia) all scored one try.

Georgian's 2016-17 male athlete of the year Edwin Addai Sarfo (Bradford) had three converts as did rookie Ryan Connolly (Barrie).

The Grizzlies have 13 returning players from last year's team which captured the OCAA championship and have the makings of another strong squad.
