Jr. Bantams tickled pink in win

After a week away from the gridiron, the Salmon Arm Junior Bantam Chargers returned to the field with a bang Sunday

After a week away from the gridiron, the Salmon Arm Junior Bantam Chargers returned to the field with a bang Sunday.

The Chargers donned pink socks to support the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign on their way to a convincing 48-0 win against the West Kelowna Tiger-Cats.

The Chargers started out quickly, scoring 32 points within the game’s first 14 minutes.

The offensive player of the game was Ashly Bakema, who scored two touchdowns on the ground. The defence was led by Sam Hall, who had multiple tackles and a blocked punt.

The Chargers will visit the third-place Kelowna Lions for their game on Sunday.


The Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers suffered their first defeat of the season with a 28-20 loss to the West Vancouver Warriors on Sunday.

The Chargers had a hard time holding onto the ball, with two fumbles resulting in majors for the Warriors.

While the offence struggled, the defence continued to play strong forcing their own turnovers and sacking the opposing quarterback five times.

The Chargers got their points from a 50 yard kick return by Tyler Chartier, followed by a two-yard plunge into the end zone by Travis Beer on the Chargers’ very next drive. Chartier rounded out the scoring for the Chargers with another long run.

The defence was led by middle linebacker Jacob Zyri and defensive tackle, Gabe Wallace.

Next up for the Chargers is a Sunday game against the Cowichan-Nanaimo  Bombers, which will be played in South Delta.
