Women Kickers wrap up first half of season

The Comox Valley Kickers women’s rugby team wrapped up their fall season Saturday

THE KICKERS WOMEN joined forces with two other teams and played an exhibition game to conclude the first half of their season.






The Comox Valley Kickers women’s rugby team wrapped up their fall season Saturday with a trip to Port Alberni to play in a round-robin tournament with the Port Alberni Black Sheep and Nanaimo Hornets.

Since all three teams suffered from a lack of numbers, the coaches agreed to divide the players into two teams and play a friendly match. The very enjoyable game ended in a 12-5 scoreline with rugby the real winner.

Women of the Match honours went to Aimee Burley (Comox), Lisa Breuer (Comox), Brenna Collicut (Nanaimo) and Sarah Cubbage (Nanaimo).

“The game on Saturday is what rugby is about,” commented Burley. “It didn’t really matter who your teammates were for the day, we all just went out and had some fun, win or lose!

“It was an awesome way to end our first half. Everyone came off the field smiling after a great game. When the final whistle blew, the girls weren’t quite ready to call it a day.”

The Comox woman now enter the winter break with training sessions once a week. Keep checking  www.kickersrugby.ca for details.
