The Kelowna Crows powered their way past Kamloops in the B.C. Rugby Union's men's third division final.

Crows soar to Div. 3 rugby title

Kelowna wins 2015 fall season title with win Saturday over Kamloops.

The old saying ‘as the crow flies’ implies the shortest route possible between two points.

And that parallels nicely with how the Kelowna Crows have played rugby this season.

On the pitch, the Crows have played punishing, straight up the middle rugby, resulting in wins while soaring to the top of the tables.

On Saturday at the Parkinson fields, the men from Kelowna closed out the season with 53-3 rout of the Kamloops Raiders in the Rugby B.C. Div. 3 mens’ final.

Inside centre Rick Schoulten got the Crows off the mark in the early going, followed by bruising runs from front-rowers Ryan Nixon and James Caravan that both resulted in tries.

The Crows led 20-3 at half-time before the floodgates opened, with Caleb Campbell, Jared Curry, Ryan McAvena and Barack Pauls all scoring tries in the second half romp. Pauls also added five conversions on the day.

The 2015 fall season title marks the second major piece of hardware collected by the Crows this year, having also captured the spring 2015 title game with a 65-17 win over Velox Valhallians back in May.

Overall, the Crows had a combined total of 19 wins and only three losses this year, which included the spring 2015, fall 2015 and Saratoga Cup competitions.

The B.C. Men’s 3rd Division now enters its winter hiatus and will return for a new season in February 2016.
