Sundays gridiron battle between Spartans and Cowichan Bulldogs

Spartans downed those gnawing Bulldogs 52-8 at the Westhills Stadium.

Those gnarly junkyard bulldogs brought their A game to Westhills Stadium. The only problem for them was that the Spartans also brought their A-plus game! With Jared “leg of” Steele having nine kickoffs from our eight touchdowns on the day, with five converts (10 points) and only one return for a Bulldog touchdown (sloppy blocking), their only score from Spencer “the tank” Logan deked and fought his way to another touchdown. Will “the animal” Gourchounov had three touchdowns and Connor “pinball” Pettepiece scored four more.

Ultimately, the Spartans downed those gnawing Bulldogs 52-8.

The only mishap on defence was a fumble recovered by “Slippery” Sam Lowden, playing with AvAn “pitbull” Wickheim. They held their offence to a few first downs.

Caleb “budder” Carrier had another stellar outing at center with 100 per cent snapping success and ran the ball for 13 yards with Logan lead blocking. Hunter “amazing” Swift had another great outing blocking on the line and swept outside for a 12 yard run. Newcomer Jason “spitfire” Boyd on his first sweep play ran an incredible 27 yard run-all 55 pounds of him-full of heart. Needless to say on such a win all players did their job well and we look forward to next Sunday’s game against the Hitmen at Westhills.
