Highlight reel return for atom football dynamo

A spectacular special teams play highlighted the last week of regular season play for Chilliwack's minor football teams.

In the last game of the regular season, Chilliwack Minor Football’s atom Blue Giants travelled to North Langley to face the Bears.

Wyatt Stobbs scored their only major in a 24-6 loss that left them with a final record of 3-7.

Officially, Stobbs ran a kick back 70 yards for the score. The highlight reel effort actually saw him cover closer to 200 yards as he zigged and zagged his way to the endzone.

Quarterback Tyler Kelly was an offensive standout, running and throwing behind the blocking of center Andrew Fawcett and guard Adrian Gilbert. Wide receiver Garrett Krieger also had a strong game.

Linebacker Kaden Anderson flew sideline to sideline to lead the defence, but it was end Lucas Feaver earning game MVP honours with five solo tackles and two quarterback sacks.

The Blue, Red and White Giants clash Saturday at Townsend Park in the ‘Poutine Bowl,’ a round-robin tourney that will determine the local atom champ.

— Chilliwack’s junior bantam Giants were held off the scoreboard in a season-ending loss to the North Langley Bears.

The Bears won 7-0, scoring their only major off an interception return in the second quarter.

The Giants marched the ball up and down the field, but lacked finish.

Fullback Nick Butler had a dominant game running the ball, while wing-back Kurtis Flynn contributed one big run and one clutch catch.

Hudson Harvey and Wyatt Hinchberger were stalwarts on defence.
