The Port Alberni Black Sheep remain undefeated after beating Westshore 37–31 in Victoria in BC Rugby Union action.

The Black Sheep led 27-17 at halftime and dominated the field in the second half.

The Black Sheep weren’t the only thing storming the Juan de Fuca field. “The weather was unbelievable,” coach Jas Purewal said. “It was beautiful when we got down there, but for 20 minutes it was nuts.”

Brennan Tourangeau scored two tries, and Anthony Selva and Ty Shannon each had singles. Kicker Jordan Kurucz had four conversions and three penalty goals, “He was perfect on the boot, which was great on a wet and windy day,” Purewal said.

The Black Sheep are on the road again this Saturday to play Castaway Wanderers.

SCRUM NOTES…Former Black Sheep Ryan Waldriff scored the final try for Westshore, on the last play of the game.
