Shutouts were all the rage in the Cowichan Women’s Football League last weekend, as four of the five games played between Friday and Sunday featured a goose egg on one side of the scoreline.
The exception to the trend came on Friday night as the Blue Steel Brew defeated the Sirens 39-19.
Sam Miiller led the Brew with two touchdowns, while Mila Main, Monni Savory, Kara Olson and Jessica Knowles also scored. Main added a pair of converts, and came up with an interception on defence. Paula Phillips also had an interception, Knowles and Kirbee Crisp had sacks, and Crisp caught a convert to round out the scoring.
Also Friday, the Law beat the Storm 6-0. Rachel Pugh led the Storm with four sacks and a flagging of the Law running back. Carly Boyd had two interceptions and Jennifer Elliot grabbed one.
On Sunday morning, the Ravens shut out the Sirens 46-0 behind a three-touchdown performance from Nikita Kitagawa. Jamie Russell wasn’t far off that pace with two touchdowns and a convert, while Lauren James had a touchdown and a convert, Kelsey Scholz also scored, and Veronica Smith had two converts. On defence, James had two sacks, Dana Thorne had two interceptions, and Rikki Wylie added a pick.
Also Sunday morning, the Crew broke the Law 52-0. Marilou Sullivan had four touchdowns and added an interception. Kirby Bains added three touchdowns, including one off an interception which she finished off with a convert. Jessica Lines-Wikkerink added one touchdown, and Nicole Pugh had two converts: one for a single point and one for two. Jessica Redlick and Lenneke Vinoly had sacks, and Alita Mattin had two picks.
The Sunday afternoon game saw the Wild down the Storm 12-0. The Wild got their touchdowns from Keri McKelvie and Marika Masters, Masters running hers in after picking off a Storm pass, one of her two interceptions on the day. Ginger Bilina also recorded a pair of interceptions. Rachel Pugh had two sacks for the Storm, and Amrit Powell had two interceptions.
