The Salmon Arm Junior Bantam Chargers ended the regular season in style on Sunday, with a dominant 47-0 win over the Kamloops Broncos. The Chargers were firing on all cylinders throughout the game, scoring on the ground, through the air and via field goals.
Offensively, the Chargers had two players who shared the game of the day honours. Braidy Parkes scored her first touchdown of the year via a 50 yard rush and Liam Davison notched his first touchdown reception of the year with a 20 yard catch.
Defensively, the Chargers notched their fourth shutout of the season and gave up only a small handful of first downs to the Broncos offense. The defensive player of the game was Spencer Paquette for notching an interception for the second straight game.
Salmon Arm finished off the regular season on a high note, and have punched their ticket to the playoffs. Overall, the Chargers finished with a record of 7-1 and they outscored their opponents by a season long margin of 301-46. The next challenge that awaits them is their home semi-final playoff game against the talented Kelowna Lions. Come on out and support your home town football team this Sunday at 2pm, at Little Mountain Sports Fields!
