Kelowna Crows unbeaten in U19 rugby

Local boys' squad looks to go 5-0 this weekend in Kamloops

Kelowna Crows player Jake Pilon goes on the attack against Coquitlam United in B.C. U19 rugby action Saturday at the Parkinson Rec Centre.

The Kelowna Crows U19 squad remains undefeated through the first month of the 2012 B.C. Rugby Union fall season.

The Crows pushed their record to 4-0 Saturday at Parkinson with a convincing 38-13 victory over the United U19 squad from Coquitlam.

Cole Mosychuk scored a pair of tries for the Crows and now has five on the season, while

Jake Pilon, Alex Ballingal and Fenner Kingston also found the scoring area for Kelowna.

“It was another good win,” said Crows coach Steve Doyle. “We still have a lot of things to improve on, but most teams would take winning any way they can get it. The big thing was our line-outs were a big improvement. We kept our shape and structure quite well, but our handling wasn’t very good. We’ll continue to work at getting better all aspects.”

The Crows, in just their second season of operation, are proving to be a serious contender in the BCRU’s Lower Mainland tier 2 league. With three regular season games remaining and the playoffs to follow, coach Doyle is pleased with the program’s progress to date and its potential going forward.

“We started it up last year and it was kind of rag-tag to start off, but seem to be building something good here. We have a major sponsor now, we have a manager and we have a U17 program below us to build from. Hopes are high and I feel like the guys have a good shot at winning it this year.”

The Crows return to action Saturday in Kamloops where they’ll take on Burnaby Lake.
