The Lethbridge Rugby Union Division II men’s team is playoff bound.

In a must-win situation Saturday in Calgary, the LRC downed the Calgary Canucks 39-19 in Calgary Rugby Union play, securing spot in the league semifinals this Saturday in Calgary.

The LRC (4-5-0) needed two wins in their final two games and beat the Red Deer Titans 59-17 Aug. 24 in Red Deer to keep their hopes afloat heading into Saturday’s game. The bonus point win Saturday puts the LRC in third place and sets them up for a rematch with the Canucks this weekend. A game time has yet to be determined.

On Saturday, Mesake Navitikuka and Foster Arens each ran for two tries for Lethbridge.

Ryan McKeown, Kyle Chisholm and Dennis Wickliffe added the other LRC tries.

Arens and McKeown each added a convert.
