The senior boys played their home game against Westsyde this past Friday, April 25. It ended up being a 12-12 tie. Both CSS and Westsyde have identical league records of 2 wins, 0 losses and 1 tie.  It is unclear at present what the tiebreaker criteria is to determine which team gets the top seed for zone playoffs. It was a very good game with great fan support. Scoreless after the first half, Westsyde scored a try early in the second half, Clearwater answered back with a try courtesy of Jairus Bromley, Aiden Sim kicked the convert to give CSS a 7-5 lead. Westsyde ran in a try and made their convert to pull ahead 12-7 with nine minutes left in play. Jacob Madden ran in a CSS try with one minute left to tie the game at 12-12. This was definitely our toughest match of the year, Westsyde had a size advantage and the CSS boys had to play some very brave defence. Our first playoff game runs this Friday, against either St. Ann’s or Merritt, location to be determined. The undefeated record remains with 5 wins and a tie.
