Good ground game boosts Vanier to victory in high school football tilt

Lots of playing time for everyone, lots of scoring, and lots of stats.

That was the happy lot of the G.P. Vanier Towhees on Friday, Oct. 5 as they clobbered the Earl Marriott Mariners 40-6 in B.C. High School Football Tier II Varsity action at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay.

“Kind of a blowout game, however we had some great stats despite playing everyone on our 29-man roster,” said Towhees’ spokesperson Pat Pidsosny.

Cody Fletcher (#32) once again barrelled through the defence, rushing for 112 yards and an incredible six touchdowns. Aaron Cambry (#88) carried the ball twice for a combined 86 yards. Mike Roller (#34) had three carries for 29 yards and Jimmy Brazier had a 12-yard carry.

QB Liam Pidsosny went to the air for a total of 64 yards, snared an interception and carried the ball five yards for a two-point convert. Leading receivers were Brandon Balon (#80) for 22 yards and Fletcher for 42 yards. Nathan Kellar (#3) caught the other interception and returned it for 25 yards. Tackling duties were handled by Mike Roller (#34) with six, Cody Cyr three and one sack, Clayton Guille (#66) and Jimmy Brazier #28 two each.

Guille also returned a kickoff for 50 yards. Fumble recoveries were handled by Mike Roller and Martin (#34) with one each. Marriott scored one TD after the start of the fourth quarter.

“As I said, great stats considering veteran starters Dylan Kennedy (centre), Jackson Smith (centre) and lineman Callum Passingham were out due to flu/injury,” Pidsosny added.

QUICK KICKS The Towhees (2-1) return to action Oct. 19 when they host league-leading Frank Hurt Hornets (2-0) with game time and place TBA … the Isfeld Ice hosted Edward Milne Wolverines on Saturday with no result available; the Ice visit Howe Sound Sounders this Saturday …
