The Port Alberni Black Sheep blanked Cowichan Piggies 13–0 to win the TC Cup on Saturday.

The Black Sheep made sure everyone at Piggie Park in Cowichan knew how much they wanted this trophy—the first time in 20 years it is coming to Port Alberni.

Head coach Jas Purewal told his players in the dressing room before the game, “you want this to be your best game of the year,” and they delivered, he said.

The Black Sheep led 3–0  at halftime on a penalty kick by Todd Daradics. They scored another early in the second half to go up 6–0. With about 14 minutes left in the storm-drenched game, Mike Nelson scored a try on a long setup, converted by Daradics, to put them up 13–0.

“The story of the day was certainly our defence,” Purewal said. “The guys were so physical.”
