Cowichan exhibition games end with loss for CRFC

Cowichan’s senior women’s rugby team fell 47-17 to Velox last Saturday in their exhibition finale before beginning provincewide First Division play.

Carolyn Gudmundseth, Laura Russell and Rebecca Kerswell scored tries for Cowichan, and Kerswell kicked a conversion.

"Some key mistakes and missed tackles at inopportune times were capitalized on by Velox swiftly," captain Sherry Spence noted. "However, there were a lot of good things to take away from the game. Our goal-line defence was solid for extended periods of time, for example toward the end of the first half that Cowichan kept the Velox ladies from scoring with solid low tackling and great rucking."

Cowichan will begin B.C. First Division play on Oct. 18 with a home game against Nanaimo.
