Chilliwack native Maleek Irons scores first Canadian Football League touchdown

The former W.J. Mouat Hawks star recorded a major against Toronto on Saturday

In just his second game with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Chilliwack native and W.J. Mouat grad Maleek Irons got on the scoreboard.

Irons, a rookie running back with the CFL team, busted the Toronto Argonauts line on a first and goal situation in the second quarter of Saturday’s game to score his first professional touchdown.

He collected 32 yards rushing in Hamilton’s big 64-14 win over Toronto.

Irons was selected 22nd overall in the CFL draft back in May, and earned a spot on the team’s main roster.

He starred for years with the NCAA’s Ohio University Bobcats, collecting 831 yards rushing and eight touchdowns in 2018.

He was also dominant during his time with the Hawks, earning provincial most valuable player honours in 2012 and 2013.

Irons and the Ti-Cats are next in action on Friday, when they host the Montreal Alouettes.
