Golden helmet greatness for local atom squads

Chilliwack atom teams finished first and third in hostile territory at last weekend's Golden Helmet preseason tourney in Langley.

Chilliwack’s atom Blue Giants dominated Langley’s Golden Helmet preseason tourney last weekend, finishing first in their division.

A stingy defence allowed four opponents to score just one touchdown, led by team MVP Braeden Macdonald.

He had help from Tye Wein, David Rogers and Vincent Branauer.

Lucas Feaver and James LeBlanc split the quarterbacking duties, working behind an offensive line anchored by Tyler Bergin and Evan Butler.

Running backs D.J. Stephens and Joshua Caverly pounded the opposition with a devastating combo of speed and power.

Chilliwack’s atom Red Giants competed in the same tourney, finishing third in their division with a 2-1-1 record.

The locals got their wins against the Langley Broncos (12-6) and Mission Niners (24-0).

Zachery Hinse scored a touchdown when he returned a fumble 40 yards.

Other standouts were Corbin Villanueva, Jayden Porter, Kaleb Matheson, Brayden Wodtke, Graeden McInally, Cameron Head and Brayden Fraser.
