PLAYOFFS PROVE TOO BIG A LEAP FOR THE KICKERS

PLAYOFFS PROVE TOO BIG A LEAP FOR THE KICKERS

Just as in hockey, so in rugby, playoff games require a different standard of play than regular season league play. On Sunday at Cumberland’s Village Park the A.F.C. Construction Comox Valley Kickers, wearing their brand new A.F.C. jerseys, learned that lesson to their peril, going down 16-12 to the Cowichan Piggies. It was a game the Kickers could well have won but indiscipline, a lack of leadership and rushes of blood to the head at the wrong times, lost them the match. Both teams realized the importance of the game at the outset, knowing that this “one-off” game meant an early summer or a move on to the next stages of the playoffs. With that in mind the game possessed a “nice bit of bite” in the early going, that could either boil over into an ill tempered affair, if not contained, or could have resulted in a really stirring contest. Unfortunately, the referee did not put his stamp on the game early enough allowing the often chippy, niggly play to continue, which led to the match digressing into a badly behaved contest that proved little fun for the crowd to watch and the players to play in. Eventually three players went to the sin bin, but that proved too little and too late to control the game. The Kickers defended well in the early going with Cowichan in the ascendency, but after keeping the visiting Piggies at bay for some time, Kim Anderton forced his way over the Kicker’s try line to put the visitors up 5-0. Soon after, with the Kickers having trouble getting out of their...
