Cowichan players were utterly dominate against SFU last weekend.  Two junior players stepped into the senior side and had a huge impact – Hayley Berg had scoring 2 tries and Skye Koyote made some big tackles throughout the game!

Player of the games went to the Canada Duo Laura and Tyson!

With the win, CowShore moved into 4th place and a play-off position.  This weekend the women travel to Langley to play Brit-Lions and host Abbotsford next weekend.  With the standings tight, these final games are must wins if the girls want to hold their spot in the play-offs.  Best of luck this weekend!

Cowichan Scorers:

Danny Hamstra: 2 tries
Owen Woods: 1 penalty, 3 converts
Louis Gudmundseth: 1 try
Ty Benson: 1 try
The pack:  1 try

The Piggies traveled over the hump last weekend for their last game against the Black Sheep this season.  

The Piggies went up to Alberni with 16 players, a significant improvement from their previous road game against United. The game started well as Cowichan was awarded a penalty try in the first seven minutes. Not long after, Danny Hamstra intercepted a pass and went over the line for an unconverted try.

Alberni was assessed a yellow card late in the first half, and the Piggies capitalized to the tune of two more tries, as Louis Gudmundseth touched down and Hamstra added his second of the game. Back at full strength, the Sheep finished the half with a try in the corner, making it 24-5.

Port started the started the second half where they left off with a quick try.  Another yellow card to the home team led to the teams swapping tries, with Ty Benson taking Cowichan’s share.

From this point Alberni mounted a come-back, scoring two more converted tries, bringing the score at 29-29, but the Piggies didn’t back down.  The Piggies were awarded a penalty close to midfield.  Undaunted, Owen stepped up and slotted it, taking back the lead and the win.

This weekend the Piggies host Abbotsford for their final home game.  This match is one of the February matches postponed due to the snow.  Abbotsford are fighting for a top spot in the league, trailing Bayside by 3 points (and tied with Surrey).  The Piggies can expect a hard push from the boys from the Fraser Valley, who will be looking to take home as many points as possible.

Kick-off is 1 pm.  Come out to cheer for the Piggies, have a few Piggy Pale Ales and enjoy the (hopefully) lovely spring weather
