CHILLIWACK MINOR FOOTBALL REPORT: WEEK FOUR

 

— Chilliwack’s junior bantam Blue Giants downed the Chilliwack Red Giants 24-8 last Saturday to improve to 3-1 on the season.

Quarterback Nick Both had a breakout game with over 200 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

One of his majors came on a long punt return.

Running backs Tyler Sprott, Ethan Mastin and Cameron Lampart also produced big yards behind the blocking of Jaren and Michael Lengert. The Blue Giants rolled up over 400 yards of total offence.

On defense, the Blue Giants were led by outside linebacker Kyle Helsloot and halfback Spencer Breslin, with both turning in stellar efforts.

A defensive line led by AJ Sagrott, Vincent Geisbrecht, and Chris Derksen was outstanding, allowing only two first downs in the first three quarters.

Owen Eyres filled in capably at safety and halfback recording two tackles.

 

— The peewee Blue Giants downed the Red Giants 40-6.

Jayden Mourato scored on the first offensive play of the game, running 57 yards behind the blocking of Jaiden Claassen and Stade Douglas. Mourato had a great day, running for two majors while also throwing a  touchdown toss to Austin Kardux.

Dustin Wutzke had a big day, rushing for one TD and kicking five converts. Brody Porter had another Blue Giants touchdown.

The Blue Giants defence allowed one passing TD, but generated interceptions by Kardux, Tyler Kermode and Bradley Langlois.  Josh Bodner almost had a fourth.

Jake Troyan recorded six tackles for a loss, with Chad Staiger, Matt Lodge, Jordan Hurst and Colton Okoth also turning in key stops.

On the Red Giant side, quarterback Brandt Davies had a solid outing, completing three passes. The only Red Giant touchdown came off a Davies to Michael Fewer connection.

The offensive line of Hudson Harvey, Taj Sidhu, Kaylee Roger and Ellie Kendall provided excellent protection.

The Red Giants D surrendered 323 yards, but the bulk of that came on just a handful of runs.

Harvey, Colin Campbell, Tommy Janzen, Nicholas Butler, Justin Crooks, Riley Egan and Andrew Locke played their hearts out in a losing cause.

 

— The Atom Red Giants downed the Blue Giants 40-7 in another all-local matchup.

In a game that was much closer than the score indicated, the Red Giants got off to a rough start.

Blue Giants linebacker Dhillon Meyers was a wrecking ball, forcing several turnovers through tenacious tackling.

The Red Giants finally settled down when  tailback Kurtis Flynn ripped off a touchdown run.

The Blue Giants answered by driving inside the five yard line, led by running backs Samuel Mannes and Josh Janssen and the  blocking of Corey Lamb.

Just when it looked like they were about to tie the game, Red Giants defensive back Travis Richley intercepted a pass to snuff out the threat.

On the last play before halftime, Flynn broke six tackles and ran 103 yards to pay-dirt, giving his team a 16-0 lead.

The second half opened with another long run by Flynn to complete the touchdown hat trick.

The Blue Giants came back with a score of their own on a 60 yard touchdown scamper by Colton Holt.

The Blue Giants defensive line led by Noah Kling, Liam Perry, Keyan Devries and Paris Mastin played stifling D to give their team a chance.

But Red Giants tailback Brendan Trotzuk entered the game late and led his team on a lengthy drive that killed the clock

The game ended with Red Giants offensive lineman Ethan Paisley scoring his first ever touchdown on a trick play that left the Blue Giants shaking their heads in disbelief.
