A dominant performance on home turf has booked the L.V. Rogers senior boys rugby team a ticket to provincials.

The Bombers hammered Cranbrook’s Mount Baker 40-0 at Lakeside Park on Wednesday to win the British Columbia Secondary Schools Rugby Union Kootenay final.

“It was a good win,” said head coach Mike Joyce. “We played well at stages but there’s plenty to do before provincials. There’s some kinks to work out, for sure.”

The win improves the Bombers to 9-0 this season. Joyce, who is in his seventh year coaching the team, said the record won’t mean much when they get to provincials.

“Undefeated is nice,” he said. “When we get the provincials the test gets stronger though.”
