The Atom Bulldogs put up a 39-12 win over the Nanaimo Hawks in Week 9 of the spring football season this past weekend.

Finn Bellis was the Player of the Game for Cowichan with 122 passing yards and two touchdowns. All told, Cowichan put up 489 total yards, with 367 on the ground. Deven Randhawa and Liam Freeland handled the ball well, with three receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns for Randhawa, and four carries for 117 yards and two touchdowns for Freeland.

Aidan Carey, Christian Murray and Dub Singh led the way on defence with four-and-a-half, two-and-a-half and one-and-a- half tackles respectively.

“It’s great to see the boys really coming together like they did,” said head coach Kyle Bellis. “Our offensive line played a standout game. Our defence has been stepping up and making key tackles when we need the most. Our team has come so far this season and we’re really looking forward to playoffs.”

Cowichan plays host to the Nanaimo Hawks on Sunday, June 8 in the Dogwood Cup semi-finals. Kickoff is 1 p.m.


The Bulldogs took a tough loss in Week 9 against the No. 2 ranked Nanaimo Legion of Boom.

“With a few key people sick or away it was a rough week,” admitted head coach Justin Young.

Even so, the squad is headed into the playoffs with their spirits high. Ranked fourth overall, Cowichan will visit the first-place Saanich Wolverines in the VICFA semi-finals.
