Rams take bite out of Bulldogs

Mount Douglas knocks off John Barsby in high school football while Spectrum falls to Belmont

Brydon Holt was named Spectrum’s MVP in their game against Belmont.

The Mount Douglas Rams defeated visiting John Barsby Bulldogs of Nanaimo 22-6 in the senior match and 43-0 in the junior game.

The senior Rams scored on their first three possessions to take an early lead in the game. Quarterback Gideone Kremler threw two first-quarter touchdowns of 17 and 10 yards to Oliver MacKenzie and Gavin Cobb, respectively. Kremler ended with 19 of 26 passes completed, for a total of 254 yards.

Declann Michielen led the rushing attack with 79 yards on 13 carries followed by Manny Lopez with 27 yards on four carries. Aidan Kachanoski led the defence with six tackles and a sack.

Kremler also led the junior Rams, throwing 10 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown pass, which was one of five catches by receiver Isaiah Cardilicchia, who finished with 67 yards.

The Rams start the AAA regular season hosting the Notre Dame Jugglers at Royal Athletic Park on Friday, Oct. 9, with the juniors kicking off at 12:30 p.m. and the seniors at 3 p.m.

Thunder look ahead

After a promising start to the exhibition football season with two close losses, the first-year Spectrum Thunder junior team ran into a seasoned program, falling 50-0 to the Belmont Bulldogs at Goudy Field.

The Thunder named Grade 9 student Bryden Holt as the team’s MVP of the game as Holt “continued his stellar all-around efforts for the team,” said junior head coach Darren Vaux.

Hold plays receiver on offence and defensive back on defence.

“We have come to expect Holt as a solid player on both sides of the ball. He was a key acquisition for our program in the off season and he continues to be as good a player for us as we had hoped.”

Holt came to Spectrum from Glanford middle school and is enrolled in Spectrum’s Athletic Leadership Program.

The junior Thunder opened their regular season versus John Barsby from Nanaimo on Wednesday (3:15 p.m. kickoff) and continue the regular season hosting the Ballenas Whalers at Spectrum on Oct. 7, 3:15 p.m. kickoff.

Meanwhile the Thunder’s senior team, now in its third season, was forced to cancel two preseason matches, last week against Belmont and this week’s tilt versus the Mount Douglas Rams.

The senior Thunder are focused on being healthy for the start of the regular season, 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 at Spectrum versus Timberline.
