The Comox Valley Kickers Men hosted Simon Fraser University RFC (“SFU”) at Cumberland Village Park this past Saturday, winning 50–10. Devon Moore (2), Brandon Hudson, Jesse Ramsay, Justin Thomson, Kyle Hall, Nick Gilmour and Tosh Wilmott scored for the Kickers with Hall adding successful 5 converts.
“SFU had experienced players but travelled light, so we were able to take advantage of the lack of numbers. We had a game plan of testing their defense with our forward pack while our strong back line were able to execute on plays. Defensively, we were able to shut them down out wide. We are building momentum and things are looking up from here,” says Hook Jesse Ramsay.
The Comox Valley Kickers Women travelled to Victoria to face off against the Castaway Wanderers II (“CW”) at Windsor Park, losing 22-91. Yui Okada (2), Tyra Schaad and Jenn Lund scored for the Kickers with Lauren Sargent adding 1 convert.
“The score doesn’t reflect it, but it was a great game. We played well with minimal subs, but CW had a few speedsters that we could not stop. We have a few key areas that need improvement, but we will continue to build on this game. We will look for redemption when CW I travels to us in two weeks,” says Co-Captain Lauren Sargent.
On Saturday, September 24th, the Comox Valley Kickers Women’s team travel to Nanaimo to play against the Hornets at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park; the Comox Valley Kickers Men’s have a bye.
