With one week remaining in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, the Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers have sealed first place in the league and have an upcoming bye-week.

The Bantam Chargers closed out their inaugural season as part of the VMFL with a convincing 42-0 victory over the Richmond Raiders at Minoru Park in Richmond on Sunday.

For the third consecutive game, the Chargers’ strong defence shut out the opposition’s offence.

On the other side of the ball, the offence once again scored more than 40 points. The Chargers boast an impressive 9-1 record. In 10 games this season, the team has amassed an outstanding 425 points, averaging 42.5 points a game.

On defence they have only allowed an average of 7.8 points against per game.

The Chargers have the best offence and defence in the league, and hold a comfortable 135-point lead over their nearest competitor on point difference.

As the first seed in the playoffs, the Chargers will face off against the Richmond Raiders in the VMFL semifinal at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops on Saturday, Nov. 28. Kickoff will be at 2:30 p.m.

In the other semi-final game, the second- seed West Vancouver Warriors, the only team to beat Salmon Arm this year, will play the third-seed Mission/Meadow Ridge Wildcats.
