JV Golds down Voodoos in first victory

The Junior Varsity Golds are quickly learning what it takes to play at the highest level

Making gains: Junior Varsity Gold Grant Shishido moves up the field as Salmon Arm defeats the Rutland Voodoos 36-8 Friday.

The Junior Varsity Golds in their first season in BC High School AAA football are quickly learning what it takes to play at the highest level in the province.

Their first two games of the season against the provincially ranked Kelowna Owls and Mount Boucherie Bears taught lessons which helped them pass their most recent test against the Rutland Voodoos.

At half time both teams seemed fairly evenly matched but in the second half the Golds found another gear and the Voodoos did not.

The final score was 36-8 for the JV Golds, their first victory in AAA JV football.

Next up are the Kelowna Owls this Friday, which will be a very tough game as the Owls both out-size and out-number the Golds. The JV Golds strategy will be to try to out-run them.
