Cowichan Secondary on to two Island rugby finals

Cowichan Secondary School’s senior boys and girls rugby teams won their respective games in the first round of the Island playoffs on Monday, and advanced to the Island finals later this week.

The Cow High girls beat Alberni District at 39-10 at home on Monday, and headed to Courtenay for the Island final on Thursday.

The boys team also played ADSS, in Port Alberni, and won 34-10.

"We are very proud of our boys, we set a game plan in place and they executed it well," coach Kenton McNutt said. "Our boys overcame a powerful yet slow forward pack from Port Alberni and capitalized on the opportunities presented to them. It was very much a complete team effort that led them to the win, with equal contributions from the forwards and backs."

The boys also travelled to Courtenay on Thursday for the Island final against G.P. Vanier.
