A weekend full of shutouts in the Cowichan Women’s Football League

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.
