Chargers’ offence on fire

The Salmon Arm Chargers remain the only undefeated team in the Vancouver Mainland Football League

The Salmon Arm Chargers remain the only undefeated team in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, as they trounced the Vancouver Trojans 46-6 on Saturday.

Jason Mourato threw for over 100 yards and two touchdowns. Tyler Chartier, Trystan Kenoras and Ryker Davison each scored two majors, while Travis Beer finished off the scoring with a short yardage plunge into the endzone.

Next up for the Chargers is a visit from the Richmond Raiders this Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Jr. Bantam

Anything the Bantams can do, the Jr. Bantam Chargers can do too, as they cruised to a 44-6 win over the fourth-place Kelowna Riders on Sunday.

The Chargers again displayed their strong rushing attack, scoring four total touchdowns along the ground.

Jonah Rivette earned offensive player of the game honours for his strong play in the second half.

Defensively, the Chargers only gave up a handful of first downs and one major.

Leading the way on defence was Ashly Bakema, who chased a Riders player 40 yards down field to save a touchdown.

The Chargers will take a break for the Thanksgiving long weekend, and will be back in action the following Sunday hosting West Kelowna for their final regular season home game of the year.


Salmon Arm took a three touchdown lead into the locker room at half time agaisnt Kelowna and seemed to have the game well in hand.

Ryley McEown, Dominic Kemitzis and Cohen Boyd scored the touchdowns opening up a 22-0 lead.

The Riders, however, were not about to roll over and blew the game wide open in the second half, scoring a touchdown in the third quarter and another in the fourth, taking the score to 22-16.

The Salmon Arm defence had its hands full, but thanks to outstanding defensive performances by Kemitzis, Ethan McPherson, Boyd and Mason Sewell, the Charges were able to stop the Riders on their final drive of the game with no time left on the clock to preserve the victory.

The Peewee Chargers are now in third place in the league and will look to improve on that this Sunday at Little Mountain when they host the Kamloops Blue Broncos.
