1st Division Women @ Nanaimo

The women’s team is excited to kick off there season – even if we are starting off short! The women have some young players joining the piggies this season, like multisport athlete Helen Brancato, which is exciting. 

The women are still welcoming new members.  Contact Captain Sherry if you’re interested or know someone who might be.

1st Division Men @ Nanaimo

The guys will also travel to Nanaimo tomorrow to open their season.  The numbers a low for tomorrow’s match as a few key members have not returned from their summer fire fighting work.  It’s going to be a challenging match as the boys are likely to face as many Premier side players as Nanaimo is allowed to play.  Nonetheless, the Piggies will play hard and use this game as a building block for their season.

As with the women, the guys are still building the team.  Interested?  Contact Coach Boner.

Let’s take a moment to recognize and thank Noah Dobson, Cody Milne, Kieran Lauridsen, Iain Berglund and Cam Jervis – plus our local volunteer firefighters Taffy, Hitchy (and others whose name escapes) – for this important work.  Come back safe (and soon) fellas.
