Cowichan Thirds top UVic Saxons

Germain Lamothe scored two tries for the second consecutive week, and Bruce Moss matched his feat as the Cowichan Piggies held on to first place in the Vancouver Island Rugby Third Division with a 24-12 win over the University of Victoria Saxons last Saturday.

Will Wheaton kicked a pair of conversions to round out Cowichan’s total.

The Piggies will play host to Velox at the Herd Road pitch this Saturday at 1 p.m. in their final league fixture.

Cowichan and Velox are the only Third Division sides that have played a full schedule, so Saturday’s game will determine who has home-field advantage for the Island final between the same two teams, on April 26. The winner of that game will move on to the provincial final on May 10.
