Black Sheep dominate in Nanaimo

Alberni Black Sheep beat the Nanaimo Hornets.

Ty Shannon scored two tries—converting one—and two penalty goals to lead the Port Alberni Black Sheep to a commanding 33–8 road victory against Nanaimo Hornets on Saturday.

“Ty was very dangerous,” Black Sheep head coach Jas Purewal said.

Shannon opened scoring for the Black Sheep with a penalty kick, and scored twice in the second half to allow the Sheep to pull away from Nanaimo for good, ensuring the win.

Mike Nelson scored on a pick and go in the corner, Riley Savard banged one in and Brennan Tourangeau added the insurance try to give Port Alberni the win.

“The first 20 minutes  of the first half we absolutely dominated,” Purewal said. “Really, the best rugby we played all year was in the first 20 minutes.”

RUCK AND ROLL…The Black Sheep don’t play at home again until Nov. 22 when Velox Valhallians are back in town.
