April 1, 2014 (ISN) – This weekend, the undefeated women travel to the mainland to take on 2nd place United. The Valhallians head to Cowichan, and the Academy are up in Comox. Cowichan and Velox are sitting 1st and 2nd in the standings going into the final regular season weekend, so this match up is a critical one for our boys.
Sunday, the 3rds head up to Nanaimo to take on VIU.
Women: Velox 73 – Bayside 7
3rds: Velox 52 – CW 10

The Velox Thirds took to Windsor park Sunday looking flush and ready to go, the team averaging two caps per player. Pletchy’s 30 caps buoyed that average considerably. With Crotchy at 8, pugilist partners Anton and Cody Walker on the flanks, and Oli at 10, and the Thirds looked tough. Chad offered his usual pregame advice, that is hit to hurt, and off we went. A hat trick by Anton, two by inside centre Pletch and no yellow cards by Pickup, and the game ended 52-10 to the good guys.
Next up, Nanaimo away Sunday. Meet at club for 9:30 am, 10:00 am departure. We haven’t traditionally traveled well, so lets change that. Ray Ray is meeting us there, so if you want to run off the shoulder of a rampaging 260 lb Maori, join us.
