Weekend Results: Caps Top Bays; Lakers Steam Past Valhallians ; T-Birds Dominate Lomas; Vikes Edge CW


Capilano 27 @ James Bay 20

The Caps obviously smarting from their loss last week to Nanaimo weren't going to let two consecutive Island trips get them down. The return of prop Neil Courtney possibly a factor. They led 10-8 at the half and closed it out 27-20.

PREGAME
#5 hosting #6, the Bays lost a close one to Ravens last weekend with some late minute lapses in judgement. The Caps lost on the road to Nanaimo. Another Island trip on the cards for the Caps. George Barton gets his first start for the Bays, deciding to join that club although courted by many. He's returning from a back injury so wishing him well as he plays himself back into national team form. The Caps have moved Adam Zaruba back to the wing, he started in the centres last week but seems to do better on the outside with space. Neil Courtney is back in the front row for the Caps, he missed October due to a supected concussion. Should be a good, hard game, close till the end. Prediction: Bays by 4.

Westshore 8 @ Burnaby 43

Burnaby put the hammer down at home piling on some late points to run away with the match. It was 19-0 at HT, 26-3 at the end of 60 then 17 more points for a final of 43-8. Next weekend is Remembrance Day with the schedule shutdown except for make-up games.

PREGAME
#4 hosting #8, Burnaby defeating Lomas last weekend, Westshore losing to Seattle. Westshore have added some beef to the bench with 42 year old Samoan legend, Trevor Leota. Sitiveni Nacoko, the powerful Fijian who impressed for the Maple Leafs at the Langford 7s has joined the club as well and starts at fullback. Nakai Penny is back after missing the Seattle match. Burnaby have Cody Rockson back at loose forward as well as Doug Breadon but missing a number of other starters. Burnaby's roster seems to change on a weekly basis and not at full strength yet. Burnaby have done enough every game to maintain a 4-2 record, they're +36 PD is modest compared the the three digit figures for the teams above them. Should be another close match. Prediction: Burnaby by 6.

WESTSHORE


UBC 70 @ Meraloma 17

UBC get their second blowout win in a row as they're starting to find their groove, they overtake CW now for second place. The Lomas drop to 10th.

PREGAME
#3 visiting #9, UBC flexed their muscles last week dominating a previously undefeated team CW. They'll be missing Ben Lesage who is playing for Canada tonight against NZ Maori but they have a pretty good replacement in Nathan Rees who hasn't shown up in the starting XV for a while. Theo Sauder captains the side and many wonder when he's going to start repping Canada in 7s or XVs. The Loma lineup isn't available at the time of writing. UBC should continue their winning ways but Lomas may suprise as they've added some imports to the roster. Prediction: UBC by 12.

from Brent Frid
The 2nd Annual Douglas L. “Buzz” Moore Memorial Cup, between the Meraloma Club and the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, will be played on Saturday Nov 4, 2017, at Connaught Park. The Cup will be awarded to the club with the most wins on the day, from the first regularly scheduled league matches (all levels & genders of play are to be included in the total – for 2017-18 the counting games will be Men’s Premier & Premier Reserve) of the playing season. If the number of wins are equal between the clubs, the tie breaking formula will be total (from all games played) points for vs total points against. U.B.C won the inaugural Cup in 2016.

CW 15 @ UVic 21

UVic get an important win to move them up to 8th place as they pass Westshore and Lomas in the standings. CW drop to 3rd place behind Ravens and UBC. The return of Gradyn Bowd was huge as he accounted for 16 points. Other try scorers for UVic were Aidan McMullan and Jackson Matthews.

PREGAME
#2 visiting #10, the Vikes not off to a great start in BC Premier and also involved in qualifying for the inaugural University XVs championship. They have Gradyn Bowd back from injury at #10 which will help but missing a couple to Canada play. They've only won one match so far against cellar dwellers Nanaimo. CW, previously undefeated, were thumped by UBC last weekend so will look to regain their form. They're missing a few players like Dustin Dobravsky, a former Vike, who is playing for Canada. They have Anton Ngongo back and Liam Chisolm, another former Vike. Two talented backlines but CW having the edge in the pack. Prediction: CW by 7.

Nanaimo @ Seattle

Nanaimo's first trip across the border and they dropped the ball, apparently a scarcity of props, passport issues and they came up short in Premier. Game may be resheduled but that's a wait and see. The VIU team which provides many players to the Reserves side are travelling to Washington to take on WWU [update WWU cancelled game due to weather.]
