The Sardis Falcons played their first ‘game’ last Friday, traveling to Surrey to face the Sullivan Heights Stars in a preseason scrimmage.
Paying homage to Sardis football alum Rick Klassen, the former Canadian Football League star who passed away in 2016, the Falcons wore a special t-shirt as they saw their first live action after two weeks of spring camp.
Facing the Stars, another new program, Sardis made a good first impression.
“What a start!” said head coach Adam Smith. “We ran 65 plays on offence and scored seven touchdowns, three passing and four running. Our first play ever on O was a deep go route TD to DJ (Stephens), who is still in Grade 8 for two more weeks.”
The Sardis defence held Sullivan Heights to one touchdown on 65 snaps, recording five quarterback sacks, three fumble recoveries and an interception.
