Golds put up one last fight

Despite scoring twice on large yardage plays, the Salmon Arm Secondary Golds came up short against the Handsworth Royals last Friday

Despite scoring twice on large yardage plays, the Salmon Arm Secondary Golds came up short against the Handsworth Royals last Friday.

In their final game of the season, the Golds were led on defence by Logan Christian and Sage King who combined for 16 tackles.

Handsworth opened up the scoring and jumped out to an early 14-point lead, thanks to a quick and efficient offence.

The Golds found the score sheet when Mark Podschadly picked up a blocked field goal attempt and ran back 82 yards for a touchdown.

After receiving a bone-crushing sack, quarterback Kevin Schmidt sat out a number of plays while Hayden Henning filled the void.

Upon returning to the game, Schmidt spotted Norman Ambauen down field and connected on a 72-yard passing play for a touchdown, the Golds’ longest passing play of the year.

“The boys fought to the bitter end and made some good plays on both sides of the ball,” said Golds head coach Brad Schmidt about the game.

Despite not winning in the regular season, he remained upbeat.

“I feel this season was a positive step forward for the program. It has been a while since this team has had an opportunity to play meaningful games and, in the end, you could tell it really meant something to the players,” he added.
