Jr. Whalers clap down on Thunder

Border Battle with Barsby will be rough and tumble affair next Wednesday

The Ballenas Whalers junior football team got a measure of revenge against the Spectrum Thunder, walking away with a 26-6 victory.

Just three weeks ago the juniors lost to Spectrum, from Victoria, by a score of 15-6.

This time they were up 20-0 at the half and finished the deal against the scrappy Spectrum Thunder 26-6 with rushing touchdowns from Austen Hunt, Liam Robinson, Ben Robinson and Matt Giroux.

Hunt rushed from 110 yards while also making seven tackles on defense and getting two sacks.

Mitchell Moulson was a quarterback’s nightmare collecting three sacks in the second half while adding two more solo tackles.

“It was a good team win, just what we wanted,” said coach Jeremy Conn. “We had a lot of players contribute on the score board and on the field. We made some mistakes that we can fix and we better figure it out quick as the Border Battle versus Barsby continues as we travel to Barsby next Wednesday for first place for AA football on the Island.”

“It’s going to be a rough and tumble affair and, as always, it will come down to who makes the least mistakes,” he said.

The win moves the juniors to 2-2 overall on the season after opening with losses to Spectrum and Barsby. They will look to return the favor against the Barsby Bulldogs this Wednesday in the juniors’ rendition of the Border Battle.

“Our goal is to get better everyday and we’re doing that,” said Conn. “This is a very committed team and we could do some big things, we just have to do our jobs one play at a time and one game at a time.”
