CSS boys win five matches in two days

Over two busy days last week, Cowichan Secondary’s boys rugby program earned five wins in five games.

Last Thursday, Brock Gowanlock and Ethan Burke scored tries and Kyle Joe kicked a conversion as Cowichan came from behind to defeat Brentwood’s second XV 12-10.

Brentwood took the lead early on by exploiting Cowichan’s defensive lapses, and led 10-0 at halftime. Cowichan found the gaps in Brentwood’s game in the second half, however and took advantage of their scoring opportunities. On Friday, Cowichan hosted Salmon Arm Secondary for a series of sevens contests, with the Cowichan boys earning the sweep.

Cowichan won 22-0 and 10-8 in two development games. Amish Dobson scored three times in the first game, Cam Modeste scored once, and Joe slotted a conversion. Dobson and Chase Gunderson had tries in the second game.

The Thunderbirds also dominated the seniors games, winning 25-0 and 32-7. Gowanlock, Brandon St. Clair, Josh Jones, Alucious Gray and Mike Hubscher had tries in the opener. Gray scored two more in the second game, with Burke, Nathan Yu, Raul Corpas-Navas and Seth Davis also scoring, and Jones kicking a conversion.

The T-Birds will host Nanaimo District Secondary for a senior XV battle this Thursday at 3 p.m., and on Friday will try to defend their championship at the Westhills Sevens tournament in Langford.
