The Port Alberni Black Sheep will start their B.C. Rugby Union Vancouver Island Cowichan Cup playoffs on the road after losing 25-22 to Nanaimo Hornets on Saturday.

“A very disappointing result,” Black Sheep head coach Jas Purewal said. The loss put the Sheep in fourth place; they head to Cowichan to play the first place Piggies on Saturday. The Black Sheep were ahead 22-17 with six minutes left in their game on Saturday when Nanaimo took advantage of a loose ball out of a Black Sheep ruck to run 50 metres and score the winning try.

“You need to score on your opportunities and that was one thing we didn’t do,” Purewal said.
