Cowichan girls' rugby teams notch two against Alberni
An improved Cow High girls rugby XV toppled Alberni 36-5 in an A game, while Cowichan pulled out a squeaker 17-15 win in the Development team game last week.
Tries by Darien Hobday, Kenielle Coleman, Lindsay Wise and Mean Sakuma with duo conversions by Sophie Cutt and Heather Derocher and a single by Grace Gillman ensured victory in the A game.
In a closely fought Development match-up, Leah Theobald scored two tries and two conversions, while Magan Sakuma pulled out one try.
Since losing to Alberni last month, the team's worked hard with their rugby knowledge and experience increasing dramatically, said coach Brad Skene, who praised the win.
"We are still a work in progress, but the harder we work and the more focus we have, the better our play and results will be."
