Comox Valley Kickers women’s team wins big

Local rugby squad defeats Langley 61-17; host Capilano this Saturday in Cumberland

The Comox Valley RFC women’s team added another win to their season when they hosted Langley last Saturday afternoon.

The two teams met at Village Park in Cumberland in what would be an exciting game. The match began with players eager; those on the sidelines saw both teams quickly trading ball possession back and forth. Finally a penalty to Langley awarded Comox the ball, and fast hands got the ball out to winger Holly Clark, who set up great field position and an easy try for Paula Moore.

With the forwards winning scrums and great communication by the back line, the Kickers continued to put points up, with unanswered trys by Natalie Nguyen and Marie Eve Brindamour Carignan. Pressure from Langley and mistakes by Comox at the end of the first half gave the visitors great scoring opportunities, but it ended with Comox up 33-0.

The second half was a different story. Langley rallied and broke the Kickers’ defence to begin adding their own points. They scored three trys and converted one while Comox put up two trys, one each from Clark and Beaulieu, to make the final 61-17.

“We have a phenomenal women’s team this year,” says Kickers’ captain Carlie Beaulieu. “Not only do we have the experience necessary to continue our well-earned wins, but the camaraderie is outstanding amongst our team which elevates our excitement for each game we play. The encouragement for each other on and off the pitch is overwhelming. Today’s game was a humble win for us.”

Man of the match went to forward Jessica Leek and Nguyen for the backs. The team faces a tough Capilano team this Saturday at Village Park in Cumberland and hopes to continue their winning streak.

The Kickers are looking for new players. All levels are welcome. They practise Thursday nights at the Fallen Alders Community Hall in Royston from 6:30-8 p.m. To find out more visit www.comoxvalleyrugby.ca
