Vicars Round Out Fall Season With a Win on the Road

This past weekend the Vicars travelled to Vancouver and the historic Brockton Oval at Stanley Park to take on the Evergreens. It was a beautiful day with a soft pitch, lots of sunshine, a little bit of cloud, and one full moon. 
 
The Vicars did a great job filling the bus with players and a few fans as well.  There were near 30 Vicars on the bus and everyone that wanted on the field got there.  They were joined by their regular valley player Aaron Zimmer as well as a familiar face to many, Mike Roberts. The younger guys on the club will remember Mike from his days in Kelowna organizing many different rugby events for the high schools. Many commented that it was an honour to take the pitch at the same time as this fine gentleman.
