The Port Alberni Black Sheep are undefeated in two games after beating Comox Kickers 69–7 on Saturday at the Black Sheep Rugby Club.

The Port Alberni Black Sheep are undefeated in two games after beating Comox Kickers 69–7 on Saturday at the Black Sheep Rugby Club.

The Sheep tied the Cowichan Piggies 25–25 the previous week.

Scoring two tries each against Comox were Ty Shannon, Ruan LeRoux, Troy Dhillon and Dane Dentoom.

Cody Loft, Matt Kelly and Brennan Tourangeau each had single tries. Jordan Kurucz kicked seven conversions in the win.

“Comox is in a development stage,” Black Sheep head coach Jas Purewal said. “They’ve come a long way from where they were a year ago, and they were missing some of their best players.”

Despite the lopsided score Purewal said the Black Sheep “were a little bit sloppy in the first half, but in the second produced some quality ball.”

The Black Sheep are in the Victoria area this coming weekend to play Westshore Velox RFC, formerly called Velox Valhallians, at the Juan de Fuca Rec Centre.

“We’ll have a good week of training because Westshore will give us a good run,” Purewal said.

The Westshore game is the first cross-over game with the South Division in B.C. Rugby Union play on Vancouver Island. The format has been modified this year so that both North and South Division teams play each other once, and each team in their respective divisions twice.
