Bulldogs primed for showdown
Two Cowichan Bulldogs teams remain in playoff contention.
The Midget Bulldogs are hosting the Chilliwack Giants in a battle of the giants Sunday at 1 p.m. at McAdam Park. Both teams finished 7-3 in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, but Cowichan gained the edge for fourth place and relegated Chilliwack to fifth based on the tie-breaker.
Meanwhile, coach Trent Jones leads his Junior Bantam Bulldogs into Victoria Sunday to play for the island championship.
The Bantam Bulldogs finished the regular season fifth with a 4-6 mark, just out of the top four required to make the VMFL playoffs.
“We were the best underrated team out there,’’ said coach Jeff McDonald. “We didn’t get blown out.’’
The players showed a great commitment. “Three practices a week and a game every Sunday is tough for 10 weeks,’’ noted McDonald.
