Towhees nipped by Wolves

Visitors post 20-6 high school football win at Bill Moore park

The Vanier Towhees didn’t exactly light up their half of the scoreboard Friday night, but their coaches were still able to notice some bright spots.

The Towhees hosted the Timberline Wolves of Campbell River for their B.C. High School Football Tier 2 AA Varsity season opener under the lights at Bill Moore Memorial Park on Sept. 21 and dropped a 20-6 decision. “Our players fought a good battle but could not seem to counter Wolves’ running back Hunter McKay (#33), who continually ran the sweep and up the middle,” said Vanier personnel  coordinator Pat Pidsosny.

“However, the game was not without bright spots,” Pidsosny noted. “Cody Fletcher (#32) caught five passes for 76 yards and also rushed for another 38 yards. Quarteback Liam Pidsosny (#4) had 38 yards total rushing and carried the ball in for our single touchdown, which we were unable to convert.

“Our defensive stars would have to be Mike Roller (#34) with six tackles. He also carried the ball on two attempts for nine yards despite being down with the flu,” Pidsosny noted. “Jimmy Brazier (#28) had seven tackles on defence and carried the ball twice for 10 yards.

“Clayton Guille (#66) was an absolute pitbull as a linebacker for eight tackles and one sack. Special teams’ highlights were notable with kickoff returns handled by Wesley Yates (#25) for a 20 yards, Cody Fletcher (#32) with two returns, one for 15 yards and a second for 16 yards, and Brazier for a return of six yards.”

This week there’s more Friday Night Lights football action at Bill Moore park as the Towhees will be hosted by the Isfeld Ice at 7 p.m. “This is the annual rivalry meeting between the two teams and should prove for a competitive and entertaining evening of football,” Pidsosny said.


Working with the players this week in practice to prepare for the Sept. 28 game are head coach Steve Klein, offensive coordinator Ralph Kussauer, defensive coordinator Rick Levigne, offensive line coach Spencer Nichol, and QB and receiver coach Brandon Huddleston.
