The Waterloo Vikings remained perfect in the WCSSAA senior boys rugby league standings Wednesday night with a 17-7 win over the Sir John A. Macdonald Highlanders. Matt Fish returned from injury to score a try as the Vikings moved into a tie with the Preston Panthers at the top of the standing with 3-0 records.
Assuming WCI and Preston both win their next games, which is quite probable, they will play Thursday at 3:15 p.m. at WCI with first place up for grabs.
Still with the Vikings, I learned through the team's parody Twitter account (you'll have to find it yourself) that they are currently the seventh-ranked team in the province by Rugby Ontario.
The KCI Raiders received an honourable mention in the girls rankings.
The Waterloo-Oxford Crusaders have made a strong return to the soccer pitch and moved to 3-1-1 in the WCSSAA First division soccer standings with a 1-1 tie Wednesday against the Jacob Hespeler Hawks.
Waterloo-Oxford didn't field a team last year but have received strong offensive performances from Matthew Dawe and Evan Prong this season. They are just behind Jacob Hespeler in the standings, tied with SJAM and slightly ahead of Galt.
The District 8 league started its field lacrosse season Thursday with a three-game tournament between St. David, St. Benedict and Resurrection at University Stadium.
