For the second consecutive game, the Salmon Arm Jr. Bantam Chargers shut out their opposition, last Sunday at the Sports Fields at Little Mountain.
The great defensive effort propelled the Chargers to their second straight win of the season after dropping the season opener.
Led by the strong play of top lineman of the game Dayton Bittner and defensive player of the game Sam Hall, the Chargers forced multiple turnovers and continually kept the Broncos’ quarterback under pressure. Quarterback and offensive player of the game, Vaughn McManamna, led the Chargers’ offence with a strong combination of ground and aerial play.
The QB completed more than 70 per cent of his passes and also linked up with tight end Austin Hanna for an impressive 40-yard touchdown pass.
The Chargers’ running attack was also very strong, with solid performances by Ashly Bakema, Luke Matheson and Chase Henning.
The Jr. Bantam Chargers will host the Kelowna Riders this Sunday at 2 p.m.
The Salmon Arm Peewee Chargers extended their winning streak to two games as they downed the visiting Kamloops Broncos last Sunday at Little Mountain.
The Peewee Chargers played a strong defensive game only allowing a single major by the Broncos, on their way to the 20-6 win. Dominic Kemitzis opened the scoring for the Chargers just before half with a 30 yard romp to the end zone.
Solid defence kept the Chargers in the game until the fourth quarter when Cohen Boyd broke out for a 75-yard touchdown run as well as a 25-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Brayton Lawson.
The Peewee Chargers now post a record of two wins and two losses and host the Kelowna Riders this coming Sunday at Little Mountain, with a noon kick off.
The Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers flexed their muscles in the Vancouver Mainland Football League once again with a dominating victory over Mission Iron Mountain. The Chargers improved their record to 4-0 with a 52-12 win last Sunday in Mission.
Only seconds into the game, the Chargers stamped their mark on the game.
Tyler Chartier took the opening kickoff back for a 40-yard touchdown to open the scoring for the Chargers. Heavy rainfall and wet conditions on the field forced the Chargers to play along the ground. Also scoring for the Chargers were Trystan Kenoras, Travis Beer and Ryker Davison.
The Chargers defence was strong again, with middle linebacker, Jacob Zyri recovering a fumble and recording two sacks.
Next up for the Chargers is a home game against the Vancouver Trojans this Saturday starting at 3:30 p.m.
