A physically stronger Surrey side ran roughshod over the Port Alberni Black Sheep in a pair of Vancouver Island tilts last weekend.

Surrey beat the hometown Black Sheep 30–7 in the Div. 1 Province Cup game and 52–17 in Div. 2.

“Surrey played well. They’re very big. They’re very physical and they had their way with us a little bit,” Black Sheep head coach Jas Purewal said. “We just couldn’t win any scrums or lineouts. We had a really tough time with that.”

In Div. 2, defending champion Surrey took advantage of Black Sheep missteps to win. “We’d miss a couple of tackles and they were off to the races,” Purewal said.
