  CW Premier Women were up bright and early to catch the 7:00 a.m. ferry for their playoff match against Capilanos on Saturday.  The early rise was to avoid any potential ferry cancellation!

Today’s BCRU action pales in comparison to the memories of last night’s Women’s RWC Final!  Super enthralling action, it will go into the vault of Great Games in my books.  The contrast between the two game plans was so obvious from the start and both styles would have their proponents –...
