   CRC Senior Men:
BLUES BEAT TYEE, FACE ROCK FOR SECOND STRAIGHT TITLE
- Submitted by
Ontario Blues spoiled Pacific Tyees' lone CRC home game at Westhills Stadium Saturday night, defeating the Coast team 32-17 and at the same time set themselves up for a championship match next Saturday against the Rock in St. Johns.

Under the complicated  mathematical CRC playoff system, and with a loss by leading Wolfpack to the Rock earlier Saturday, Blues can earn their second straight title with either a win or tie against the Rock.
A performance such as the one against Tyees would do it.

Blues had the game won at half time leading 20-3 after both teams struggled in the early going. They added two tries mid-way of the second half to salt it away.

Captain Derek Daypuck led the Blues with two penalty goals in the first half and added three converts.

It was 20-0 for Blues before Tyees got their lone points of the first half, a penalty goal from 30 yards out by Connor Braid.

Daypuck put his team in front with a 40-yard penalty goal 15 minutes into the match. Nine minutes later Jamie MacKenzie scored a try off a scrum from three yards out. After Daypuck's second penalty goal, Blues went further ahead when Tyler Ardron picked up a loose ball and scampered 60 yards down the right sideline.

Tyees put a bit of a scare into Blues at the start of the second half when Clayton Meeres picked up a loose ball and ran it in from 25 yards out while many of the crowd were just settling into their seats for the game to resume. Braid converted.

Blues then totally dominated, MacKenzie scoring his second try from five yards out and Andrew Crow, a second half sub, scoring the most exciting try of the game, picking up a loose ball near the Blues goal line and running 90 yards untouched to the Tyees end zone.

Tyees Cole Racine got some measure of revenge for the home side, scoring on a three-run run with six minutes remaining, Braid converting.

“I think we played well,” said Blues' coach Chris Silverthorn. “Overall we have to be satisfied and we're happy with the win.”

One more win and they'll be extremely happy.
