Ravens remain atop CWFL after week four

Crew and Blue Steel also pick up victories

A 56-12 win over the Wild on Sunday afternoon kept the Ravens undefeated and firmly atop the Cowichan Women’s Football League standings after four weeks of play.

The Ravens went up 31-6 in the first half, and cruised from there. Jamie Russell led the way with three touchdowns, Amy Aitchison and Autumn Cooper had two each, and Emma Cunningham and Ali Cooper had one apiece, with Cunningham and Rikki Wylie adding converts. Cunningham and Russell also contributed on defence, each grabbing one interception.

The Wild are dealing with some injuries, but got touchdowns on Sunday from Rhiannon Kemmler and Jeannine Gaudreault. Kemmler also had an interception, and Rebecca Oliver and Shylayne Davidson recorded sacks.

Having struggled out of the gates this season, the Crew lured speedster Marilou Sullivan out of retirement and it paid off as she scored three times in a 26-19 victory over Moo’s Law on Sunday morning. Jackie Harrison also scored for the Crew, and Jess Lines-Wikkerink had a pair of converts. Rusher Stepheny Cuthbert had two sacks, and Sullivan hauled in an interception.

Scoring for the Law were Megan Newton, Jaimie Olson and Tanya Green, with Olson and Green adding converts. Leanne Closson had two interceptions, and Kelly Hall had one.

The other morning game saw Blue Steel double up the Winter Trucking Storm 34-17. Mila Main led the Blue Steel attack with two first-half touchdowns and another in the second. Michelle Nederlof scored on a remarkable rush, and Olivia Bakker and Nina Padjen had the other majors, with Rachael Bakker contributing a pair of converts. Main, Courtney Wilcox and Monni Savory had interceptions for Blue Steel, and Kirbee Crisp and Roby Clement had sacks.

Vicky Harris, Ashton Aumen and Kat Waldron replied for the Storm, who got a convert from Shelbie Paddle and interceptions from Harris and Caitlin Erickson.
