The Nanaimo Hornets

Sheep fall to Hornets

The Nanaimo Hornets beat the Port Alberni Black Sheep 23-17 in rugby action last Saturday.

The Port Alberni Black Sheep took a commanding 10-0 lead in the first half of their Div. 1 home tilt against Nanaimo Hornets, but penalty trouble cost them dearly as the Hornets came back to win 23-17 on Saturday.

“We took a lot of penalties on offence. Ill discipline on our part and two yellow cards—that’s 20 minutes playing a man down,” head coach Jas Purewal said.

Anthony Selva and Gavin Purewal scored tries for the Black Sheep, both converted by Ty Shannon.

The Black Sheep are at home again this Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. when the Comox Valley Kickers come to town. The Sheep need to improve their scrummaging if they hope to beat the Kickers again, Purewal said.
