Bantams shine at SunGod tourney

Chilliwack Minor Football

Chilliwack’s bantam Blue Giants traveled to North Delta last weekend to play in the annual SunGod Tournament, going undefeated in three games to take the title.

Opening against Meadow Ridge, the Giants set the tone with a touchdown on their very first possession.

Running backs Jake Creasy and Filip Horak had several great runs and the drive was capped off when Kirkland Kennedy plunged into the endzone.

Creasy, Horak and Connor Herrmann would finish the day with two touchdowns each and Josh Pretty also found paydirt in the tournament’s final game against rival North Langley.

Not to be outdone, the Giants’ defensive group was equally dominant.

They shut out all three teams and were never seriously threatened.

Defensive standouts, in a unit that was missing several key starters, included Clinton Boylan, Will Zomar, Thomas Heuser, Duncan McCracken and Nashon Douglas.

The bantams open their regular season schedule Sunday in Cloverdale.
