Ground game helps Grizzlies stomp Sounders

GW Graham's varsity football crew was dominant in a 49-0 weekend win over the Howe Sound Sounders.

Five GW Graham players had quarterback sacks as the varsity football Grizzlies blanked the Howe Sound Sounders on the weekend.

Josh Lecher, Kirk Samulak, Diego Pineda, Prince Dhillon and Josh Mander all got to the quarterback in a dominant defensive performance.

Pineda added a fumble recovery.

With the D tilting the field in GWG’s favour, the offensive enjoyed a highly productive day.

The Grizzly ground game pounded out 320 yards and five majors, led by starting tailback Brett Westad.

Westad had 131 yards on seven carries (19 yards per carry) and three touchdowns. Tristan Davis rushed three times for 92 yards (31 ypc) and one major and Ryan Connolly ran twice for 77 yards, including a 60 yard touchdown.

Quarterback Terrell Sparvier only threw five passes, completing four of them for 52 yards, with TD tosses to Connolly and Treyvon Walsh.

Kicker Josh Lecher nailed three convert attempts.
