Rams trounce defending champion Sun Devils

Mount Douglas senior boys gain convincing win in South Delta to push their record to 2-0

The Mount Douglas Rams senior boys football team earned a measure of revenge with a 39-6 victory over the South Delta Sun Devils in Delta on Saturday. It was a rematch of the 2014 AAA Subway Bowl in which the Sun Devils (0-2) ended the Rams’ three-year AAA title run.

The Rams are now 2-0 with the least points surrendered, 13, among all AAA B.C. High School Football teams.

Coach Mark Townsend credited the Rams defence for holding the high-powered Sun Devils to just a single touchdown. Quarterback Gideone Kremler completed 20 of 26 passes for 178 yards and three touchdowns. Declann Michielin ran for 104 tough yards and two touchdowns. Gevhahn McNally-Hardisty and Josh Lucas each intercepted the ball for touchdowns.

The junior Rams stayed in Saanich and defeated the Notre Dame Jugglers 40-0.

Both teams host the New Westminster Hyacks (1-1) Friday at Mount Doug. The junior sides kick off at 12:30 p.m. followed by the senior teams at 3 p.m.

 

 

Spectrum falls short

After winning the first game in the school’s young history, the Spectrum Thunder senior football team dropped to 1-1 on the season with a 28-5 loss to Eric Hamber last week in Tier II play.

Earl Marriot was here Thursday to face Spectrum (results were past press time). The Thunder have a bye next week and visit Squamish on Nov. 7 to face the Howe Sound Sounders.

 

The junior Thunder host Nanaimo District secondary on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 3:15 p.m.
