Strong start fades for Cowichan women’s rugby team

An excellent start got Cowichan’s senior women’s rugby team off to a 15-5 lead over Meralomas last Saturday as Carolyn Gudmundseth scored twice and set up a try by Rebecca Kerswell.

They couldn’t hold on to that advantage, however.

"The game was very competitive, and unfortunately we were our worst enemy letting some penalties happen," Cowichan captain Sherry Spence said. "The Lomas were able to march down the field, and that resulted in them scoring."

After a couple more missed tackles by Cowichan, the final score was 29-15 for Meralomas. Gudmundseth and Laura Russell were named Players of the Game.

Cowichan will be at home this Saturday, kicking off against Kamloops at 11:30 a.m.
