UBCOB Ravens – March 2024

Ravens Prevail in Entertaining Game Ravens 43 – Caps 28
Report by Peter MacDonald

On a miserable rainy day before a lively, full house crowd at Klahanie the Capilanos threw a scare into the Ravens before the visitors pulled away for the win in the last 20 minutes. It was a quality game and Raven fullback Nick Blain after the game commented that it was one of the toughest games they’ve had all season. Kudos to the Caps for ignoring the record and continuing to play good rugby.

BC Premier Week 12 Results and Rosters: Lomas Hold Off Burnaby, UBC Defeat Bays, Vikes Edge CW, Pride Fall to Westshore, Ravens Top Caps

There are 3 weeks left in the regular season with 7 teams battling for 6 playoff spots. The Caps and Bays have been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, the Ravens and Lomas look on track to capture the top two quarter-final byes (pending this weekend’s Burnaby v Lomas result) and home field semi-finals. Burnaby look safe in 3rd with CW, Westshore, UBC and UVic battling for the 3 remaining spots.

Now that the week 12 scores are in, not much has changed except the race for the final 3 playoff spots tightens up, CW, Westshore, UBC, UVic continue to be locked in a battle with one team destined to lose out. The Lomas and Ravens look assured of quarter-final byes and home field semis and Burnaby are now locked in for at least 3rd place and a home field quarter-final.

UBCOB Ravens – March 2024

Ravens Too Much for CW: Ravens 71 – Castaways 14
Match Report by Peter MacDonald

On a sunny, warm, late winter day at Windsor Park the Ravens surprisingly proved too much for the host Castaway Wanderers. Apart from an early Raven try, where centre Ethan Berry put away left winger Aga Ligamy, it was the expected hard-fought game in which two strong packs duked it out evenly… until the 20 minute mark.

BC Rugby Weekend of March 16th 2024

BC Premier Week 11 Results and Rosters: Ravens Soar Past CW; Bays Fall to Westshore; Burnaby Defeat UVic, Caps Topped by UBC

Only four weeks left in the BC Premier regular season with teams jostling for playoff positions. The top 6 get in the playoffs with the Pacific Pride not eligible, 1 and 2 get quarter-final byes and 3 v 6 and 4 v 5. Currently that would see the Lomas and Ravens get byes, Burnaby host UVic and CW host Westshore but a lot can change after the weekend. Indeed it did change, now with 3 weeks left it would be Burnaby hosting UBC in the quarter-finals with the other positions remaining unchanged.
