Wrecking ball: Dawson House of the Salmon Arm junior bantam Broncos

Winning ways continue for Chargers

The Shuswap peewee Colts fell to the Kelowna peewee Lions 39-6 in a hard fought battle

The Shuswap peewee Colts fell to the Kelowna peewee Lions 39-6 in a hard fought battle, where the final score did not accurately reflect play on the field.

On offence, the Colts were led by the tough running of Ryan Berke, and on defense by the tenacious tackling of Isaac Berke. The team’s lone touchdown was scored by Sam Hall on a 60-yard scamper to the end zone.

The Colts play next Sunday in Kelowna, and are back home on Sept. 28 for Shuswap Minor Football’s annual “Football Day” where all three Shuswap teams play back to back.

The Shuswap junior bantam Broncos played against the Kelowna junior bantam Lions.

The momentum of the game shifted back and forth with many lead changes.

The Bronco’s Dawson House, Luke Matheson and Luke Simmonds all scored touchdowns.

In the fourth quarter Bronco’s quarterback Chase Henning threw a pass for a late go ahead touchdown by Dylan Eugster.

With one play left and no time on the clock, the Lions scored another touch down winning by a score of 28-26.

Other notable mentions for the Bronco’s were Devon Schumacher, Dean Koller, and Devin MacPhee as player of the game.

Next Sunday, the Bronco’s are in Kelowna to play the West Kelowna Sun Devils.

The Shuswap bantam Chargers won a tough defensive battle against the Kelowna Riders.

Both sides struggled to gain yards against very tough defenses.

The Charger offense scored on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Jayden Mourato to wide receiver, Nicholas Zaff and a 20-yard pass and run to slotback Tyler Chartier.

The Charger defense also contributed to the scoring with a two point safety.

The Chargers face the Kelowna Lions next Sunday with the winner taking sole possession of first place.
