L.V. Rogers senior boys rugby took home their first tournament title in Penticton on the weekend.

L.V. Bombers dominate Penticton tournament

The L.V. Rogers Bombers’ pursuit of defending another Kootenay rugby title and provincial championship berth began this weekend.

The L.V. Rogers Bombers’ pursuit of defending another Kootenay rugby title and provincial championship berth began this weekend with a dominant display at the Mag-Pen Spring Fling in Penticton.

The senior bombers went undefeated with three wins and a tie led by the powerful leadership of captains Jake Lock and Jake Kindred.

Tying Penticton high school 0-0 to start the tournament, the Bombers found their bearings with three dominant wins, beating Mount Boucherie 12-0, Princess Margaret 27-0 and rivals Kalamalka 10-7.

After the inaugural year of rugby academy at LVR, coupled with winter training, coaches Mike Joyce and Brad Swan were pleased all of the team’s hard work translated into an on-field product that looks consistent with Bombers championship rugby.

Bombers rugby thanks Brian Garvin, Q.U.I.K. Ltd. and the Nelson Grizzlies executive board for this season’s uniform sponsorship.
