The Salmon Arm Junior Bantam Chargers ended the regular season in style on Sunday, with a dominant 47-0 win over the Kamloops Broncos

The Salmon Arm Junior Bantam Chargers ended the regular season in style on Sunday, with a dominant 47-0 win over the Kamloops Broncos.

The Chargers were firing on all cylinders throughout the game, scoring on the ground, through the air and via field goals.

Offensively, the Chargers had two players who shared the game of the day honours.

Braidy Parkes scored her first touchdown of the year via a 50-yard rush and Liam Davison notched his first touchdown reception of the year with a 20 yard catch.

Defensively, the Chargers notched their fourth shutout of the season and gave up only a small handful of first downs to the Broncos offence.

The defensive player of the game was Spencer Paquette for notching an interception for the second straight game.

Overall, the Chargers finished with an impressive record of 7-1 and they outscored their opponents by a season-long margin of 301-46.

The Chargers’ next challenge is their semi-final playoff game against the Kelowna Lions. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. at the SASCU Sports Field at Little Mountain.

Peewee

Despite losing their last game of the season, 40-28 to the West Kelowna Tiger-Cats, the Salmon Arm Peewee Chargers clinched a playoff spot.

In a rematch of last weekend’s game the Chargers and Tiger-Cats will meet in the semifinal playoff game on Sunday in West Kelowna.

Bantam

After a bye-week the Bantam Chargers will return to action on Sunday in Vancouver against the Vancouver Trojans.
