Women’s rugby in the Comox Valley is thriving once again

Kickers team gets spring season off to strong start by winning first two games

The Comox Valley Kickers women’s rugby team has had a strong start to their spring season, winning both of their opening matches.

On Feb. 14 a very enthusiastic team under the coaching of Aaron L’arrivee travelled to Victoria and played with grit and heart, outscoring Velox 66-20. Credited with most of the day’s trys, newcomer Samantha Matheson showed her skill and speed on the outside and quickly ran up the scoreboard for the Kickers.

Also having a good game was the team’s kicker Paula Moore, making eight of 10 conversion kicks. Other scorers for the Kickers were Danelle Campbell and centre Natalie Nguyen.

On Feb. 21 the Kickers were in Vancouver to play a match against the Scribes, a new team in the division.  They were little competition for the Comox Valley team and the final score was 107-0.

Scoring for the Kickers from the backs were Moore, Marie Eve Brindamour-Carignan, Nguyen and from the forwards Jessica Leek, Campbell and Carlie Beaulieu. It was a fine day on the pitch and although the game was lopsided in points the players on both sides enjoyed the match because it was played with camaraderie and good sportsmanship.

The Kickers women’s team has seen an influx of new, talented players and are looking forward to a successful season. They have a week off before hosting Langley at home at Village Park in Cumberland on March 7.

New players of all levels are always welcome. To find out more about the team or the sport visit www.comoxvalleyrugby.ca
