Towhees take on Ice tonight

Controlled scrimmage starts 6 p.m. under the lights at Bill Moore park

The Friday night lights at Bill Moore Memorial Park will be ablaze this evening (Sept. 7) when the Vanier Towhees and Isfeld Ice engage in some pre-season gridiron action.

The two local Junior Varsity clubs are holding a controlled scrimmage to shake off the off-season rust and begin fine-tuning their teams for the upcoming high school football season. The action begins at 6 p.m.

Football fans can get a sneak peak at what they might expect at this year’s Petrock Bowl when Vanier defends its title and local bragging rights during the regular season.

Vanier and Isfeld will be carrying the Vancouver Island colours in Tier II Varsity this year as the Timberline Wolves of Campbell River have folded. The locals will play agasinst Earl Marriot, Milne, Howe Sound, Moscrop and Frank Hurt this year.

Meanwhile, Vanier coach Pat Pidsosny notes three former Towhees are enjoying solid season with the Westshore Rebels, who are currently in third place in the British Columbia Football Conference with a 3-1 record.

 

Running back Connor Willis, receiver Ben Marsh and defensive back Curtis Parker are all contributing to the Rebels’ success.
