Golds still searching for first win

The Salmon Arm Secondary Golds lost yet another nail-biter of a game on Friday evening.

The Salmon Arm Secondary Golds lost yet another nail-biter of a game on Friday evening.

The West Vancouver Highlanders picked up their first win of the season in Vancouver narrowly defeating the Golds 8-6.

“The boys played hard but we had some missed opportunities,” said head coach Brad Schmidt.

In the first quarter, quarterback Kevin Schmidt connected with Norman Ambauen on a 50-yard passing play, the Golds’ longest passing play of the season.

Kevin also connected with Noah Dies on a 27 yard passing play for the Golds only major of the game.

The defence again played another strong game only allowing eight points.

Ben Novakowski was a bright spot on defence for the Golds as he consistently shut down the Highlanders’ offence and picked up an interception.

The Golds have struggled to find their preseason offence in the regular season.

In three regular season games, the Golds have not been able to break double-digit scoring, and have only scored a total of 22 points.

The Golds are still searching for their first win of the season and will have another shot to grab a win against first-place Argyle Secondary this Friday at 2 p.m. at the Sullivan Campus.
