The Port Alberni Black Sheep took a knocking on the rugby pitch this week, dropping a 28–3 contest to Cowichan here at home. It was the Sheep’s first loss since the beginning of the B.C. Rugby Union season.

“It was a big win for them,” Sheep head coach Jas Purewal said.

Cowichan took a 10-0 lead early in the game. Jordan Kurucz scored a penalty goal to put the Sheep on the scoreboard, but with seconds left in the first half Cowichan had a dropped goal. They began the second half by scoring points right away for a 16–3 lead.

Cowichan rounded out scoring with a try and a converted try.

The game cost the Black Sheep more than points, as Kurucz left the game in the second half with a broken collarbone.

“We weren’t as disciplined as we have been,” Purewal said.

The game was chippy, and the players seemed distracted, she said.

“The first 15 minutes was all us; we completely dominated them, but came away with no points. That inflated them.”
