The Spartans “horsehoe” up to receive their captains after the opening coin toss.

Spartans tie up against Cowboys

Football team plays exhibition series and ties game

With a split in a two game exhibition series, the Spartans were back in the saddle “Friday night lights” in Ladysmith.

They were taking on the Fairview Cowboys of Nanaimo. With the ball on our 3-yard line and the Cowboys poised to strike in our end-zone, our favorite d-lineman Spencer “I stole the ball” Logan did just that again-twice in two game, after which Tyson “T-Bone Boyd launched a 30-yard pass to Carter “the Flash” Price who then ran 70 yards beating tackles and scoring our first t.d. of the game!

Next possession Cowboys scored. Defence played incredibly anchored by Logan and Jacob LaMontagne, Sam Lowden, Hunter Nicks, Garett MacClean, Carlos, Ben Power, Owen Cheng and Will Gor. Next half with us throwing for an incredible 150 yards total passing T-Bone Boyd connected with Ben power on a 23-yard pass and a 32-yard run scoring his first offensive t.d. of the season.

Power also caught a 6-yard hitch for the extra convert point. Next possession saw “Flash” Price returned a punt for over 60 yards setting us up. We didn’t score and we ended up in a tie-13-13.

Awesome game by both teams. As a parent of a player and a coach for over seven seasons it’s with great pride that with no p.a. system to sing “O Canada” our players stood in the middle of the field and sang it themselves.Much to the delight of the crowd!

Next game “redemption in Cowichan.”

Coach Andy
