For the fourth consecutive week in the BC High School AAA Varsity Football League, the Salmon Arm Golds failed to score more than eight points in a game.
The Golds got off to a bright start, holding the number-one Argyle Pipers to within their 30-yard line on the opening possession.
Salmon Arm had a short field to work with and looked poised to open up the scoring.
The Pipers’ defence mounted an impressive goal-line stand forcing a turnover on downs en route to a 28-6 victory.
Despite the lopsided score the Golds offence played well, as they made up lots of yards along the ground.
Unfortunately, once in scoring range the Golds could not find their way through the Pipers’ defensive line.
Defensively the Golds played well but struggled to maintain their intensity as the Pipers’ much larger roster wore out the Golds. Coming off their worst defeat of the season, the Golds will look to this Friday’s contest for their first win in the last game of the regular season against Handsworth.
Friday’s game is at 2 p.m. at the Sullivan Campus field.
