The Capilano Rugby Football Club looks to build off its recent four-win weekend with six matchups away from home this Saturday, Oct. 20.
The U-19 men begin the day with a rematch against the host Rowers at Brockton Oval at 10 a.m. Last weekend it was the Capilanos who edged the Rowers 12-8 at Klahanie Park.
At 11:30 a.m. the Capilano Premier Women kick off the first of four matches at the “LomaDome” in Connaught Park. The Cap women battled to a hard-fought 25-5 loss last weekend against league-leading Burnaby and this weekend will be again looking for their first win of the fall season against an 0-3 Meraloma squad. Also at 11:30 a.m., the 1-3 Capilano Third-Division Men’s “B” team — coming off a 20-17 loss to the Ex-Brits last weekend — will face the 1-1 ‘Lomas.
At 1 p.m. the 3-1 Capilano First-Division Men’s team will tangle with the 1-2 ‘Lomas. Last weekend the Capilanos recorded an 8-5 win over Burnaby Lake, while the First-Div. ‘Lomas lost 33-18 to the Castaway Wanderers.
At 2 p.m., the 2-2 Capilano Third-Division Men’s “A” team will take to the road to square off against 1-1 Kelowna. Last weekend the Capilano Thirds beat Burnaby Lake 31-6, while Kelowna defeated the Scribes 20-18.
The marquee matchup of the day pits the defending provincial champion and league-leading 3-1 Capilano Premier Men’s team against the second-place, 2-1 Meralomas at 2:45 p.m. The Caps recorded a 21-9 win over Burnaby Lake last weekend, while the ‘Lomas handed the Castaway Wanderers a 20-13 loss.
All fans and players should stay connected throughout the week for updates on possible time and location changes to the games based on the weather, particularly the two 11:30 a.m. games at Connaught Park.
