Cowichan Piggies handed the Kickers their first loss of the season, 28-17, thereby gaining a measure of revenge for an earlier 44-0 defeat. The Kickers couldn’t get anything going as they repeatedly shot themselves in the foot. Aaron Larrivee summed it up…”Even after penetrating their defensive line we suffered from loose support, dropped ball and bad choices.” In addition, the Kickers’ inability to consistently kick converts and penalties came back to haunt them. Congratulations to Cowichan for a well played match. Comox Valley tries were scored by Mike Magee, Leigh Burley and Nathan Holley. Andy Hextall and newcomer Curtis Parker were chosen as CV Men of the Match. Next game: Velox, Feb 26th, 1:00 PM, Village Park, Cumberland.
