Minor football report: Atom smash sees white beat blue

Chilliwack's Blue Giants pitched a shutout against their White Giant counterparts, winning 14-0 at Townsend Park.

An all-local atom football fight saw Chilliwack’s White Giants top the Blue Giants 14-0 last Friday at Townsend Park.

Charlie Larson scored the first White Giants major, ripping off a long touchdown run.

Big blocks by Dominique Harrison and Judah Lueck created space for White Giants quarterback Alex Cayer to sneak into the endzone with the second score.

The suffocating White Giant defence was led by Lincoln Boyd and Isaiah Tolmie, with Camden Norman adding a TD-saving special teams tackle.

On the Blue Giants side, tailback Kaein Jenner and fullback Noah Johnson had strong games, with Jaxon Blakeborough and Rylan Parks splitting QB duties.

Defensively, Lawson Dades and Josie Hagel both had fumble recoveries.
