1st Division Men 10 – Nanaimo Hornets 47

Scorers for Cowichan were Jenner Tuefel and Noah Dobson.

A tough start for the boys against Nanaimo last weekend.  With a very young side with a number of key players away and others playing out of position, Coach Wright knew it would be a challenge.  He was nonetheless proud of the effort and the character the team showed.  It was a good eye opener to many of the players – they know now what it takes to play rugby on the Island.  The boys need to settled down into some hard work and preparation, and if they do, the success with come.

The team has worked hard this week to learn from their errors and are looking forward to a better result this coming weekend against the Norseman.

Team Manager Needed

The 1st Division Men are seeking a team manager.  This very important jobs includes supporting the team and coach at training and game days are among the chief duties.  Please contact Gord McGeachy if you’re willing and able.  

Premier Women 

The Prem Women were originally scheduled to start their season this weekend against reigning BC Champs, Westshore.   Unfortunately (and oddly) Westshore has come up short and pulled out this weekend.  It is unclear if this will be a forfeit or reschedule.   

It’s a shame really because the gals are chopping at the bit to start the season and build off their solid spring.  For their first entry into Premier in a very long time, the Piggies finished in the middle of the pack and will be looking to improve their standing and make a run for the play-offs.  

Please note, the women’s (both teams) schedule for the Premier Women has changed since originally posted and the website will be adjusted accordingly.  

2nd Division Women

The first time every, Cowichan will have 2 senior women’s teams!  The gals will start their season against Comox on Saturday.  These games will be played with development in mind and game will be adjusted to fit the number of players available any given weekend.  Focusing on getting the players on the pitch thereby deepening the pool of senior players is the for this team and the league overall.  

We look forward to welcoming our newest team this weekend!

Congratulations

Our warmest congratulations to Malcolm and Elise Standfred Sacht on their marriage last Saturday. 

Also congratulations to Brock Gowanlock who has taken his football career to the next level.  Brock is now a member of the University of Manitoba Bison football squad.  After an impressive pre-season start against reigning Vanier Cup champions UBC – where Brock started nearly every down on the defensive line – the Bisons have stumbled to a 0-2 record in Canada West play.  Brock is getting decent playing time for a freshman we wish luck on your season Brock!
