Sardis Falcons air attack humbles Okanagan-Mission Huskies

The Falcons hit the road to Kelowna and came home with a big AAA football win.

The Sardis football Falcons put on an air show Friday night, bombing the Okanagan-Mission Huskies on the road in Kelowna.

Quarterback Josh Janssen completed 16 of 23 passes for 384 yards and an absurd seven touchdowns against a defence that had no answers.

On the first Falcons drive of the game, Janssen hit Noah Saunders for a 71 yard score.

The Huskies answered back with a 98 yard scoring drive of their own to tie the game at 7-7, but it was all Sardis from there.

“Josh caught fire at one point, hitting nine straight passes, including three for TDs,” said head coach Adam Smith. “We ended up punting once all game, scoring seven touchdowns on eight drives.”

Saunders ended the game with five grabs for 136 yards. DJ Stephens had four catches for 111 yards and three majors. Zach Wilson had six catches for 70 yards and two scores and Yanik Vargas made one catch count for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Davies Mitchell scored on a 75 yard kick return.

“We wanted to execute at a high level and I think we did that very well,” Smith said. “As for Josh, what can I say but I love that kid and all the hard work he puts in on and off the field. This is only the start of how much potential he has and how successful he can be.”

On the defensive side, Aidan Saunders again led the way with nine tackles. Caleb Moore had eight and Ethan Holmes had six.

Blake Goward lived the defensive lineman’s dream, picking off an errant pass and rumbling 20 yards before the Huskies were able to drag him down.

The Falcons remain on the road this week, traveling to Cloverdale to face the Sullivan Heights Stars in a Friday night battle.
