Junior Varsity Golds face formidable Owls

The Salmon Arm Secondary Junior Varsity Golds hosted Vernon and Westsyde high schools to an exhibition football jamboree last Wednesday at Little Mountain.

The Salmon Arm Secondary Junior Varsity Golds hosted Vernon and Westsyde high schools to an exhibition football jamboree last Wednesday at Little Mountain.

Good weather, fans and exciting football were in good supply during all three games. The jamboree had each team playing one another in a 2 x 10 play- per-team format with no special teams (ie: kicking). Each game lasted about 45 minutes.

The JV Golds defence was again very stingy, not allowing any scores, while the offence improved since last playing Prince George by scoring touchdowns in both games.

In the three exhibition games played by the JV Golds this season, they have been out-sized but not-out skilled; thus the results have been positive.

The JV Golds have their first regular season game against the three-year, undefeated in regional play, JV Kelowna Owls at the Kelowna Apple Bowl on Sept. 30.
