BC Club Finals 2017

UBC Claim Three-Peat in Men's Premier; Westshore Dominant in Women's Premier; Other Winners Surrey, United, Meraloma, Capilano, Burnaby

[ed. comments below]

Burnaby went into finals day with three teams but only came out with one Cup as they defeated UVic in the Premier Reserve but fell short in men's Premier and Div 3. Westshore went two for two claiming the women's Premier title and the Div 3A title. Other clubs claiming single titles were Surrey (men's Div 1), UBC (men's Premier), United (women's Div 1), Meraloma (men's Div 2), Capilano (men's Div 3B).

Mens Premier
BURNABY LAKE 17 V 29 UBC

It was all UBC in the first half with Andrew Coe leading the way. It was 26-0 before Burnaby fought back with three tries but it wasn't enough. UBC had the edge out wide and Coe and Sauder again put on a show. Up front Burnaby bludgeoned their way forward but the attack was predictable and UBC's defence made the going difficult. UBC claim their third straight title.




Womens Premier
WESTSHORE 67 V 17 SEATTLE

Westshore dominated this match and ran up the largest scoreline of the day. Canada players like Barbara Mervin and Elissa Alarie led by example in the victory.

Burnaby v UBC - Men's Premier 4:30pm

If karma is a rugby fan then this should be Burnaby's year. They went undefeated in the regular season, they've posted match reports every week without fail, they've posted rosters pregame every week, they're the closest thing we have in BC to a professionally run rugby club. They've done everything to deserve the Rounsefell Cup this year. However rugby is won on the field and UBC are two time defending champions. UBC lost the head to head match but that's because they were double booked with Cal Bears and put in their second team for the Burnaby match. UBC also lost to CW in the regular season. UBC are well coached, have a solid forward pack with a couple of imports in the front row that they've been bringing in as high impact subs, Lemkus and Taylor. Theo Sauder and Andrew Coe in the backs are well known, Sauder scoring three tries last weekend against CW. Burnaby are solid throughout, a dominant set piece, their national team player Admir Cejvanovic available at #6. Taitutsi Vikilani at #8 is one to watch for higher honours and Cole Mosychuk their openside has been getting praise from the sideline. It's a strong backrow. How the backs matchup could be key. James Reekie is a wily veteran at #10 and Rockson at #9 is top class, it's a good halfback combination. It's going to be a great match but I think this is Burnaby's year. Prediction: Burnaby by 5.

Westshore v Seattle - Women's Premier 2:30pm

Westshore undefeated all season, again have to think this is their year. Seattle very strong at home but lost to Westshore twice, to Cowichan, CW and Capilano once. Prediction: Westshore by 8.

SEATTLE


Nanaimo v Surrey 12:30pm

A toss up between two strong programs. Jamie Beaton at #10 for Surrey is a top prospect, Joe Blain the Nanaimo #8 typifies the strong work ethic of the Hornets. Also watch out for Jared Stephens the winger for Nanaimo who is usually good for a try per match.
