Spartans steamrolled by red-hot Giants

Chilliwack's bantam football Giants have five straight wins, including a 56-0 bombing of the Victoria Spartans last weekend.

Chilliwack’s bantam football Giants blew another opponent out of the water, bombing the Victoria Spartans 56-0 last weekend.

The Giants D was dominant, carrying the team to its second straight Vancouver Island road win.

Offensively, the Giants ran the ball with ease, led by tailback Cam Lampart.

Leading 34-0 at halftime, backup Riley Clayton took over at quarterback, running for one touchdown and throwing another to Trey Isaac.

Nathan Jennings added a pair of majors.

Winners of five straight, the Giants (5-4) host South Delta Saturday in a game that will determine the third and fourth seeds in the playoffs.

 

— Two Chilliwack atom teams finished the regular season on a winning note.

The White Giants demolished the Meadow Ridge Blue Knights 30-0.

The defence dominated, with Taylor Both, Jake Sondervang, Kai Manning, Vincent Braunaur and Dayton Rogers all recording quarterback sacks.

Any ball carriers making it past the line of scrimmage were quickly taken down by Trent Cote and Jaxon Visser.

Special teams were flawless.

Kicker Ben Uz twice delivered perfectly placed onside kicks that were recovered by his teammates.

Heavy rain and wind couldn’t keep the White Giant offence quiet.

Visser had another big game, running for 150 yards. Braunaur had three TDs and Austin Wegener had two.

Uz, Rogers, Logan Head, Will Aiken and Cameron Istace delivered crushing blocks on the offensive line.

Meanwhile the Blue Giants wrapped up their regular season slate with a 38-24 win over Mission.

Carter Dallas had one of the big plays, returning a kickoff for a TD.

On kickoff coverage, Theo Smith tracked down the Mission return man, ripped the ball from his arms and raced the other way for a major.

Offensively, running back D.J. Stephens went over 100 yards rushing, with two touchdowns. Aidan Saunders and Travis Richley paved the way with big blocks.

The balanced Giants offence saw nine players score at least one TD this year.

Kenyan Reid, Andrew Fawcett and Jared Rahnborn had big defensive days. Raiden Mastin and Matthew Phillips created all sorts of havoc in the Mission backfield.

The fourth place Giants (6-4) visit unbeaten Meadow Ridge Gold (10-0) in a playoff game Saturday.
