Crows host Lions Saturday in semifinal

Kelowna Rugby Club men's team looks to advance to third division final on May 9

The Kelowna Crows are a step away from a berth in the final of the B.C. Rugby Union’s 3rd division.

The Crows will host Vancouver’s Brit Lions in the league semifinal on Saturday afternoon at the Parkinson fields. Kick off is 1 p.m.

The winner will move onto to face the winner of the other semifinal between Capilano and the Velox Valhallians.

The Crows, who finished first in the regular season with an 8-1 record, advanced to the semifinal with a 42-10 victory over Burnaby Lake in the quarters last Saturday in Kelowna.

Meanwhile, the Crows’ women have a bye into the Div. 2 final on Saturday, May 9 at Brockton Oval in Vancouver. The Crows will face the winner of Seattle and Comox.

Kelowna was to have hosted the semifinal this weekend at Parkinson, but Capilano forfeited the match.

The Crows, who went 6-1 during the regular season to finish atop the table, defeated Capilano last weekend 56-12.
