The Walnut Grove Gators continue to run roughshod over their opponents.

The senior boys’ rugby team improved to 3-0 after shellacking the visiting Chilliwack Storm 51-0.

The two teams hit the pitch at Walnut Grove Secondary School on Thursday (April 12).

Zach Laliberte scored two trys and three converts, while Mook Kim, Jin Ku Yun, Kadyn Foster, Trevor Richardson, Brenden Elliott, Min Jun Park and John Quon each had one try.

The Gators are atop the Fraser Valley tier 2 Eastern Division standings and they have outscored their foes 138-10 in the process.

The team hosts D.W. Poppy today (Tuesday) at WGSS.

A victory will give the team the Langley Shield as the top local squad, since they earlier defeated Brookswood.

Walnut Grove has  assured itself a spot at next month’s Fraser Valley championships.
