Cowichan women crush United to retain top spot in B.C. First Division

Prior to a three-week break that takes up most of April, Cowichan’s senior women’s rugby team continued its strong play in the spring season with a 57-0 win over United in Coquitlam on April 5. Cowichan scored 10 tries against the United defence in the contest, led by Carolyn Gudmundseth with five and Brandi Van Eeuwen with three. Annie Zurrer and Stacey Collison had one each, and Tanya Ness kicked a conversion.

Gudmundseth was named Player of the Game in the backs, while Zurrer, who scored her first-ever try for the Cowichan women, received the honour in the forwards.

Cowichan isn’t in action again until April 26 when the team travels to the Interior to play Kamloops, who currently sit second in the B.C. Women’s First Division, just two points back of Cowichan.

Cowichan has four wins and a tie for 18 points in five games, while Kamloops has four wins and a loss for 16 points in five games. Ridge Meadows also has 16 points, but has played six games.
