Golds run away with win

Under the Friday night lights, the Salmon Arm Secondary Golds kick-started their exhibition season with a 32-2 win

Under the Friday night lights, the Salmon Arm Secondary Golds kick-started their exhibition season with a 32-2 win over the Westsyde Bluewaves.

Golds’ running back Jase Roberts ran circles around the Bluewaves’ defence in their first exhibition game of the season at the SASCU Sports Complex at Little Mountain.

The Golds stormed out to a commanding 20-0 lead after the first quarter, thanks to a touchdown from Robert, his first of two on the night.

Robert’s 103 rushing yards helped propel the Golds to the commanding win.

Led by Sage King on defence, the Golds did not allow the Bluewaves to score on offence, giving up two points for a safety.

The Golds will look to carry their momentum into the next game  on Friday versus Fulton Secondary in Vernon, before returning home to face Valleyview in the final exhibition game of the season on Friday, Oct. 2 at 6 p.m.

Head coach Brad Schmidt and his squad  look poised to make quite the impression in the BC High School Football Association’s  AAA Varsity Pacific Division when they take on Seaquam Secondary in Delta.

The Golds’ first home game of the regular season will be at Little Mountain on Friday Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. against Rutland.
