CWFL hits halfway mark

Storm shock Wild in second half, Ravens remain unbeaten, Law upset Blue Steel

The Cowichan Women’s Football League reached the halfway mark of its 36th season with some exciting games at McAdam Park on Sunday.

A strong first half and a touchdown by Val Chambers had the Wild ahead of the Storm 6-0, but the Storm surged after the break and walked away with a 24-6 victory. A blocked pass by Shelbie Paddle was the Storm’s only highlight of the first half, but Annie Zurrer kicked off the second-half rally with a touchdown and added three interceptions for an exceptional two-way outing. Caitlin Erickson added two touchdowns and one interception, and Jennifer Elliott and Julie Martin also had picks before Katrina Waldron capped the game off with a major on the final play. The Wild got two interceptions from Jeannine Gaudreault and one from Shylayne Davidson, and two sacks from Ginette Bilina.

The Ravens continued their bid for a perfect season with a 38-6 win over the Crew. Chelsey Strandlund had two touchdowns and two converts for the Ravens, and Amy Aitchison scored twice and added one convert. Also scoring for the Ravens were Courtney Wylie and Alli Cooper, while Becki Patterson had a sack on defence. Kate Collins had the lone touchdown for the Crew.

Quarterback Jaimie Olson led Moo’s Law to a 32-15 victory over Blue Steel, posting two touchdowns, a punt and an interception. Leanne Closson, Britnie Hearsey and Megan Newton also scored, and Newton added a convert. Rachael Bakker and Monni Savory had the Blue Steel touchdowns, with Bakker adding a convert, Michelle Nederlof a one-point punt, and Kirbee Crisp a sack.
