Chilliwack Minor Football

MINOR FOOTBALL REPORT

WEEK FIVE

 

Chilliwack’s bantam Blue Giants travelled to Langley Oct. 1 to take on the North Langley Bears.

A 60 yard scamper by Nashon Douglas set up the game’s first major by Kirkland Kennedy.

On the next Chilliwack possession,  Kennedy hooked up with Jake Creasy on a 45 yard passing play to increase the lead to 13-0.

Late in the second quarter, Filip Horak hauled in a 35 yard pass to set up Creasy’s second touchdown of the game. A successful two point convert made it 21-0 at halftime and the  final score was 21-6.

Playmakers on the Giants defense included Josh Fitzsimmons, Zach Toews, Colton Derouin and Treyvon Walsh.

 

— The junior bantam Red Giants had a tough time against Meadow Ridge, losing 44-0.

Defensively, Jacob Martin had three solo tackles and five assists.  Cameron Betker and Jordan Breuker both had two solo tackles and three assists each.

Elijah Schellenberg recovered a Knights fumble.

Special teams hurt Chilliwack as the Knights returned a punt 50 yards for one major and took their own kickoff 42 yards for another touchdown.

 

— The atom Red Giants dropped a 24-20 heartbreaker to Ridge Meadows, falling short with a furious fourth quarter rally.

The Giants opened the scoring on a long run by Kurtis Flynn, but the Knights countered with two majors of their own.

The score at halftime favoured the Knights 18-6 and they took a 24-6 lead early in the second half on another long run.

Chilliwack’s defence, led by Mason Murphy, Josh Lodge and Dayton Rodger, shut it down from there, giving the offence a chance to come back.

Flynn and Thomas Nelson scored a pair of TDs on bruising runs, and given five more minutes the Giants likely would have pulled out a win.

 

— The atom Blue Giants squeaked out a 26-20 win over the atom White Giants in an all-local clash.

Michael Martin had 12 carries for 143 yards and three TD’s for the white side, adding seven tackles and one forced fumble on defence.

Fullback Grayson Frick had four carries for 64 yards and Kaleb Reemeyer twice converted TDs with five yard runs.

Saftey Logan Buchwitz turned in another standout game on D with four tackles. Jacob Bailey had three tackles and a quarterback sack.
