Rookie Tien Guyen starred on offence and defence last Sunday as the Winter Trucking Storm beat the Wild 24-19 on the second weekend of Cowichan Women’s Football League play.
Guyen had four interceptions in the first half, running two of them in for touchdowns, and caught a pass from quarterback Rachel Paddle to score the winning major in the fourth quarter. Hien Tran-Primeau also scored a touchdown for the Storm on a 40-yard catch-and-run play.
The Wild scored all three of their touchdowns in the second half, getting two from Keri McKelvie and one from rookie Lindsay Elzinga on a long catch-and-run. McKelvie also scored a convert, and Dieneke Pedersen picked off a Storm pass.
The afternoon game saw the Hindsight Fishing Ravens down the Law 37-19.
The Ravens played a strong team game, with the offence holding things together in the early going until the defence could regroup. Rikki Wylie and Chelsea Strandlund each scored two touchdowns, while Jamie Russell and Morgan Rogers had one apiece. Autumn Cooper had a convert, and Lauren James added a sack.
The Law lost quarterback Jaimie Olson in the first half. Her replacement, Patti Atkinson, kept things going and threw for three touchdowns. Kim Scafe, Bryn Piper and Leanne Closson all scored, with Closson adding a convert, while Tanya Green had an interception.
The Crew picked up an easy win in the standings as the Sirens had to forfeit their scheduled contest.
