Chargers book spot in finals

The Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers will battle for the BC Community Football Association (BCCFA) provincial title

On the heels of a thrilling semi-final victory, the Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers will battle for the BC Community Football Association (BCCFA) provincial title.

The Chargers had secured home field advantage for the semi-final match up against the Richmond Raiders, but mother nature had other plans.

Due to snowy conditions at both Hillside Stadium in Kamloops and the new athletic park in Vernon, the game had to be moved to Minoru Park in Richmond.

At half time, the Chargers trailed 21-7, as their offence struggled to sustain drives and their defence had a difficult time controlling one of the best running backs in the league, Spencer Mok.

The Charger’s offence kicked it into high gear in the second half, as they scored on every drive in the third quarter.

Tyler Chartier led the attack rushing for   more than 250 yards and three touchdowns, behind one of the best offensive lines in the league.

Although Mok scored two more touchdowns in the second half, the Charger’s defence came through on critical plays to deliver the win.

The final score was 42-34.

The Chargers will play the only team to have beaten them this year, the Westside Warriors, for the B.C. Championships.

The same is also true for Westside, as the only team to beat them this season was Salmon Arm.

Kick off for the final is at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6 at McLeod Stadium in Langley.
