Under sunny skies in Port Alberni, inspired set play produced consistent and timely possession that allowed the Kickers to down an initially spirited and stubborn Black Sheep side 54 - 12. Ross McLean scored 2 trys while singles were added by Pieter Voster, Jake Nessman and Troy Mader. Kickers Man of the Match, Eli Cummins, chipped in with a try and six conversions. A penalty try was awarded to Comox Valley.
Have a look at the slideshow below to see some of the action. Many thanks to Michelle Hamilton for her regular support and attendance at away games, not to mention the images and videos (the latter is mostly available on our team’s group on Facebook).
This last game of the fall fixtures was highlited by strong Kicker tackling, good support and unrelenting pressure. A great player turnout was icing on the cake for the 9 - 0 Kickers. (Report by Harry Gaines.)
The Kickers are currently leading the Island Div 3 by a comfortable margin.
VIRU play-offs begin this coming Sunday, December 4 @ 1:00 PM, Village Park, Cumberland.
Special mention goes out to Chris Ostertag and Aisha Mendez who recently got married (as well as a belated congratulations on the birth of their son). Also to Greg and Alana Merchant on the birth of their daughter and to Pieter Vorster and Caila Holbrook on the birth of their daughter. It’s good to know there will be future players for both Men’s and Women’s teams.
