(ISN) – Congratulations to the JV Rams on their decisive victory over Spectrum this past Wednesday. This week, the JV Rams travel to Ballenas to battle the Whalers on Wednesday October 22, with kickoff at 3:15 pm.

The Mount Douglas Varsity Rams continued their winning ways with a 34 to 0 victory over West Van. We have to give a ton of credit to West Van. They came into this game banged up with injuries, and limited to about 15 available players. They made the trek over to Island, battled hard throughout the contest and showed a lot of class. For Rams, Gavin Cobb was the leading rusher in the game with 88 yards and 1 touchdown. Seye Farinu had 64 yards on the ground and 2 majors, while rookie Nolan Tesch chipped in with 50 yards and 1 rushing TD. Quarterback Joe Clarke continued his efficient play hitting on 7 of 11 passes including a touchdown strike to Declann Michielin. Another solid effort for the entire offensive line was a huge factor in the game.

On the defensive side of the ball, the stingy Rams defense was led by Seye Farinu with 5 tackles, followed by Jon Grohovac and Morgan Pearse with 4 tackles each, and rookie Mauricio Olascoaga and Justice Kremler registering 3 tackles a piece. Justice Kremler also recorded the only turnover of the contest with an interception, and for his efforts was the “Wolf of the Week”.

Next up for the Rams will be a showdown with South Delta that will decide the Western Conference Champion. The Sun Devils are very well coached, and immensely talented. They look extremely impressive on film and their quarterback Lucas Kirk has been outstanding this year. Should be a heck of a game. The “Clash for the Conference” will take place on Friday October 24 at 2:30 pm at Goudy Field. The game is also Senior Day for our graduating players…and lastly, also marks “Cowbell & Thunder Stick Friday”…that’s right, “We Need More Cowbell”…let’s make some noise, especially when South Delta has the ball!

Practices this week for the Varsity team are Mon, Tue and Thu at 4:45 pm at the school. For the next 2 Wednesdays (Oct 22 & Oct 29), we will be at Westhills Stadium from 8 pm to 10 pm…please ensure that you have a ride there and back, and you are ready to step on the field at 7:50 pm. On Tuesday Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 18, Nov 25 and Dec 2, the Varsity Rams will be at the Indoor Turf at Oak Bay Rec Center from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. We will arrange for a bus to transport you to Oak Bay Rec on those Tuesdays (only). Let’s have a great week of practice this week in preparation of our tilt with South Delta.
