The Cowichan Piggies wrapped up the first half of the senior men’s rugby season with a fun match against Comox last Saturday afternoon.

After missing out on the Times Cup playoffs, the Piggies used the open date to make up a game they missed earlier in the season. Several players came out who hadn’t been on the field in several years.

Cowichan just barely missed out on the playoffs after losing a close one against Westshore the week before. The Piggies scored the last three tries of the game to narrow the gap, but fell short of completing the comeback and ended up losing 29-26.

“We were three points short,” coach Andrew Wright lamented. “We poured on the pressure. The guys showed a lot of heart and desire.”

Wright was thrilled with the way the team improved from September to November.

“I couldn’t be happier with the finish,” he said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t get through.”
