Mount Doug Rams face St. Thomas More Knights in Subway Bowl semifinals at UBC on Saturday (Nov. 29) at 5 pm

A pair of dominating Gavin Cobb punt returns helped set the tone as the Mount Douglas Rams jumped to a 50-0 halftime lead before cruising to a 57-0 victory over the Kelowna Owls in the B.C. High School AAA quarterfinal playoff game at Westhills Stadium on Friday (Nov. 21).

Cobb returned the first Kelowna punt 85 yards to the Owls’ second-yard line setting up the first score. He then raced 73 yards for a major on his second punt return. Cobb finished with three returns for 183 yards, an interception, two tackles and 15 yards rushing on two carries.

Jonah Merino led the defence with five tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.  The win puts the Rams into the Subway Bowl semifinals at UBC versus the St. Thomas More Knights on Saturday (Nov. 29) at 5 p.m. St. Thomas’ junior squad recently ended the Jr. Rams’ playoff run and season with a 39-6 win in Burnaby.
