Although we had good kick-returns by Simon Herald #3 and awesome runs by both Owen Cheng and Jared Steele, our O-line didn’t respond well: we failed to score a point and didn’t connect offensively with blocks or ball-running against the Gordon Head Raiders.
Having said that, we fought hard with Caleb Carrier, Jacob LaMontagne, Miguel Black, and Jacob O-Te’s Riley Stratton; and, Carson Montague had great improvement on blocking.
The defence held their own, holding the high scoring Raiders to 18 points while making two big interceptions, by league-leading free safety Ben Power and Thomas Lowerison with his first of the year.
Many good tackles by corner-back L.P. Gagnon, Ben Power, Jared Steele, and Quinn Macdonald. Grayson Hoolaeff wearing #51 saw his first touchdown saving tackle, with more to come! There was also a great game-ending tackle by #68 Kieran “take em down” Franklin on the star quarterback from the Raiders!
Other play-ending tackles came from O-liner Jacob LaMontagne and line-backer Spencer Logan-next game Westhills stadium-Sunday against the Nanaimo Lions.
