Cowichan’s Atom Bulldogs fought hard against the Westshore Warriors at McAdam Park this past weekend but ended up on the losing end of a 45-18 score.

Finn Bellis handled the quarterbacking duties for the team, amassing 154 passing yards — all to Deven Randhawa, who scored two of the team’s three majors — and 64 yards on the ground, including a touchdown of his own.

Brett Fifield, Austin Shaver and Tayt Clarke also carried the ball for the ‘Dogs while Liam Freeland led the defence with five tackles, two for losses, and a sack.

Westshore’s offence just couldn’t be stopped, however, but Cowichan did slow them down considerably. After the Warriors put up 19 points in the first quarter, the Bulldogs defence buckled down and made them work extra hard for every subsequent score.

The Bulldogs play host to the Victoria Spartans at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 4 at McAdam Park.


Chalk up another win for the peewee Bulldogs as they claimed a 35-0 over the Westshore Warriors this past weekend.

“It was a close game we finished with some crushing defence,” said head coach Justin Young. “Our entire D-line was having a field day from Josh ‘Happy’ Dadswell, Devon “Junior” Thomas, Reef Perry, and Vaughn Williams all tearing apart Westshore’s offensive line.”

The Bulldogs’ offensive was passing heavy against the Warriors, with two passing touchdowns for Rylen Heyer as well as about 60 yards of total offence.

Charlie Freeman had three touchdowns and Harrison Plaxton added another.

“It was an exciting game moving pieces around and seeing who could play what,” Young said. “We are primed for next week against the Spartans.”

The game begins at 11:30 a.m. at McAdam Park on Saturday, May 4.
