Crew, Ravens shut out Wild in Women’s Football

It was a difficult weekend for the Cowichan Women’s Football League’s Wild as they were kept off the scoreboard in backto-back games on Friday and Sunday. The Crew shut down the Wild 32-0 on Friday, thanks in large part to the outstanding defence of Nicole Pugh, who had two interceptions to go along with some superb flagging.

Marilou Sullivan also had an interception to go along with her two touchdowns. Alita Mattin, Jessica Lines-Wikkerink and Willy Toews also had single touchdowns, Mattin and Lenneke Vinoly added sacks, and Kerynne Bain chipped in with a twopoint convert.

On Sunday, the Ravens defeated the Wild 31-0. Dana Thorne led the Ravens with two touchdowns and an interception, while Nikita Kitagawa, Jamie Russell and Rikki Wylie also scored, Wylie’s TD coming on a 100-yard run after an end-zone interception. Veronica Smith added a convert and an interception, and Emily Salmon had one pick.

Also on Sunday, the Blue Steel Brew got by the Law 26-18. All four BSB touchdowns were scored by Jessica Knowles, with Mila Main adding a pair of converts. Kirbee Crisp had two sacks and Monni Savory grabbed an interception.

The Sirens were initially credited with a 37-7 win over the Storm on Sunday, but the result was overturned due to a roster issue with the Sirens, and the game will go in the books as a 25-0 Storm win.
