With a score of 28 - 13, the Petawawa-Pembroke and Valley Rugby Football Club Predators triumphed against the Lanark Highlanders Rugby Football Club 28-13 on July 28. This achievement marked the last home game of the season before playoffs and the game was held at Bishop Smith Catholic High School in Pembroke. Tries were from Jackson Severin, Pat Wight, John Anderson and Jason Leger. Connor SeverinĀ  kick 4/4 for point after. Man of the Match was Jackson Severin (#10, Fly Half). The Predators will continue their march towards success with a game in Cornwall on Aug. 6, and hopefully onto the tournament. The team itself is composed of 25 players; a combination of civilian and military members, most of whom have played for Team Canada in the Armed Forces World Cup (IDRC) in England.
