The U18 Cowichan Piggies beat Bayside 38-0 at the University of Victoria last Sunday to win the plate final for third place in their league.

Cowichan got three tries and three conversions from Will MacDougall-Percillier in the victory over the Surrey team. Connor McGarry, Colten Smith and Santiago Guadarrama also scored, and Guadarrama kicked a conversion of his own.

The Piggies had lost to Castaway Wanderers — the eventual league champions — 21-12 in the semifinal a week earlier.

“The U18s had a hard battle this year,” Cowichan junior rugby director Kenton McNutt said. “Unfortunately they let it slip away against Castaways, but they came back last Sunday and got a convincing win over a tough side.”

The U18 Piggies amassed a 3-2 record during the regular season to squeak into the playoffs in fourth place in the top tier of the provincial league.
