The Vanier Towhees defeated the Isfeld Ice 49-8 this past Friday to win the 2012 Petroc Bowl.
The trophy, emblematic of Comox Valley high school senior varsity football supremacy, was contested under the lights at Bill Moore Memorial Park.
Highlights for the Vanier squad included Cody Fletcher running the ball 12 times for 158 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also hauled in two passes for 30 yards receiving.
Jimmy Brazier also lit up the field with four carries for 61 yards and two TDs, Mike Roller racked up eight carries for 68 yards and twoTDs. QB Liam Pidsosny took to the air 11 times with six completions for 67 yards.
The Vanier defence held the Ice to a single TD via one sack by David Blackburn and the tackling strength of Clayton Guille and Cody Cyr, each with five tackles.
The Ice came back after the half and tallied their major when veteran QB Cody Ullock hit his mark using Chase Hutchings on the drive down the field. That set up another Ullock pass to Brook Henry for the TD. Dustin Shilton remained Ullock’s favourite rushing weapon led by the blocking of fullback Josh Griffith.
GP Vanier is back on the gridiron this afternoon (Oct. 5) at Bill Moore park at 3 p.m. as they host Earl Marriot. “Check out the exciting action,” a Towhees’ spokesperson said.
