Gideone Kremler’s 20-yard touchdown strike to Gavin Cobb was the only second-half scoring Mount Douglas could muster last Friday. But the stifling Rams defence made sure it was all they would need in their 28-21 win over New Westminster Hyacks to move to 3-0 on the season.
Kremler opened the scoring with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Gevhahn McNally-Hardisty, followed by a two-point convert.
New West battled back with a pair of touchdowns to take a 15-8 lead before Declann Michielin rambled for a pair of touchdowns to give the Varsity Rams a 22-15 halftime lead.
The Rams defence shut down New West in the second half, led by Michielin (13 tackles) and Justice Kremler (12 tackles). Tyrese Hogue had a sack and two fumble recoveries, while Gevhahn McNally-Hardisty had six tackles and an interception.
Gideone Kremler went 15 for 28 for 166 yards and a pair of touchdown strikes. Cobb hauled in nine receptions for 136 yards and one major, while Michielin powered his way for 152 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns.
The JV Rams fell 47-46 to New West in an epic battle.
Mount Douglas travels to face Vancouver College this week, with the Junior Varsity playing Friday and the Varsity club taking the field Saturday.
