Mixed results for Westshore RFC

Rugby sides have time to regroup with Thanksgiving weekend off for most

The Westshore RFC Valhallians elite men’s team is still looking for their first win under the new banner.

The former Velox club team valiantly battled against James Bay in B.C. Premier League qualification play at the Juan de Fuca field Saturday, but lost a 43-31 decision.

With Thanksgiving weekend off, the Valhallians have plenty of time to tee up for their next match, Oct. 17 against Castaway-Wanderers at Windsor Park.

Earlier Saturday, Westshore RFC Island Division 1 men’s team also fell to 0-3 with a 27-14 loss to James Bay.

The Div. 1 Valhallians are tentatively playing Port Alberni Black Sheep at JdF this Saturday (Oct. 10) at 1 p.m., but the match had yet to be confirmed at Gazette press time.

The defending B.C. champion Westshore Valkyries continued their dominance in Island women’s elite/Div. 1 play, humbling visiting Comox 53-0 in the opening match last Saturday at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre.

The Valkyries have this weekend off then head to Nanaimo for a morning match at May Bennett Pioneer Park against the Hornets.

The Westshore Under-18 side next sees action Oct. 25 in Duncan against Cowichan. Westshore lost 48-10 to Bayside on the mainland on Sunday.
