With the 2nds and 1sts both in their respective BC semifinals, the anticipation and expectation were high. The 2nds had a date at Crush Crescent with Langley RC and the 1sts were going to be seeing Abbotsford RFC at home, yet again. The unpredictable spring weather teased us, fooled us, and pleased us.
The best day of April was reserved for the first round of the 2nd Division playoffs as Surrey hosted Burnaby Lake Buffaloes RFC. The heavily depleted 3rd & 2nd Division player pool made selections that much easier as it was a matter of who was left and were they available to play on Easter weekend.
For the second consecutive week Surrey hosted 3 sides at home, the makeup games found Surrey matched up with the 3rds v Vancouver Rowing Club, 1sts v Cowichan (they played second due to travel considerations), and 2nds v Brit Lions RFC.
