Broncos to take on champs

The Salmon Arm JB Broncos played in the first-round playoffs and defeated the Kelowna JB Dragon by a score of 36-12.

The Broncos’ offence started slowing in the first half but luckily the defence did not and kept the Dragons at bay. In the second half, the Bronco offence woke up and began to tally up some drives and scores behind a strong power run game led by tailback Jayden Mourato.

With both a strong Bronco offence and defence in the second half, all the Dragons could do was watch.

The entire Bronco defence deserves mention but the play of Reilly Jacques, Mathew Nesdoly and Jacob Morland was exceptional

The Broncos now face the first-place and former 2011 BC Provincial Champions, the Kelowna Lions. The games goes Sunday in Kelowna.

Colts complete

The Salmon Arm Pee Wee Colts season came to a close Sunday on the losing end of 13-6 score against third-place West Kelowna. Each Colt gave it their all, but the fuel tank ran out in the second half. With a short bench, many Colts had to play both offence and defence the entire game. This season was a developing year for the team, who always played a strong first half.

The 2012 Peewee Colts, coaches Mark Lindgren, Rob Seaman, Ron Blackburn, Aronn Heckrodt, Shawn Casimiri, Matt Bacon, and team manager Bonnie House appreciate all the parents for their support and cheers from the sidelines. The coaches also appreciate the Colts themselves for always seeing the fun side of football regardless of the score.
