Season ends for Titans

Squad comes up short in thrilling 19-7 finish against Bulldogs

Oceanside Youth Football’s Jr. Bantam Titans showed no fear last Thursday as they battled the unbeaten Bulldogs but came up on the short end of a thrilling 19-7 final in their championship game.

The Bulldogs, from Harewood in Nanaimo, finished the regular season first in the standings.

Oceanside coaches Guy Therrien, Brad Burns and Brendan Burns “were very proud and told their boys we’ve got nothing to loose but everything to gain as long as we play hard and have fun.”

Team leader Jacob Kirby and his mates got into the team spirit in the days leading up to the big game with Mohawk hair cuts, and “all week long the boys were pumped for this big event.”

The Bulldogs may have been unbeaten, but the Titans showed no fear.

“It was a great game (offensively and defensively),” said team booster and football dad Tom Le. “Lots of skill from both teams.”

Le pointed out the game came down to a couple untimely fumbles.

“We can’t ask for anything more from these boys — they fought very hard and they all had fun,” Le added.
