Giants repeat at Bronze Boot

Chilliwack Minor Football

Chilliwack’s junior bantam Blue Giants won their second consecutive Bronze Boot football tournament last Saturday at Bear Creek Park in Surrey.

In its 42nd year, the tournament is hugely competitive and very tough to win.

The Blue Giants defeated the Surrey Tigers, Surrey Bears and Cloverdale Cougars on their way to the title, led by a gashing ground game.

Running back Emerson Smith had seven carries for 104 yards and two touchdowns while Tyler Sprott added 87 yards on eight carries with two majors.

Running backs Ethan Mastin and Cameron Lampart carried the ball three times each, with Mastin scoring a touchdown.

The line of scrimmage was dominated by an offensive line led by AJ Sagrott and Michael Lengert.

Quarterback Nick Both completed three of six passes for 78 yards, adding nine carries for 84 yards.

Defensively, the Giants were led by defensive tackle Chris Derksen who produced five tackles and two sacks. Linebacker Sam Meyer and halfback Spencer Breslin were standouts with several tackles each.

Breslin, also a kicker, nailed four of five converts and kicked a successful onside kick (recovered by Mastin).

The Blue Giants open their 2011 season Monday in Chilliwack against Mission.
