Cowichan Bulldogs bow out

After battling hard in the final week of the regular season to claim the fifth berth in the Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs, the Cowichan Bulldogs were unable to take advantage of that position, as their season came to and end with a 31-0 loss to the Coquitlam Falcons last Sunday.

"It was not our best game," head coach Opie Williams said. "We had three fumbles and two interceptions, plus two turnovers on special teams." The Bulldogs were trailing just 7-0 in the first quarter and moving the ball well when a wideopen receiver dropped the ball, missing a clear touchdown opportunity. The Falcons returned the ensuing punt for a touchdown.

"We just didn’t play well, made mistakes that you cannot do in a playoff game," Williams said.

The Bulldogs did give opportunities to some of their veterans, who ended up playing in their last games. Andrew Ketola got an opportunity to redeem himself when the Bulldogs tried their "Special Willy" play again after it didn’t work out the previous week, and Landon Conville also got to carry the ball.
