The Wolverines, now 3-0 on the season, have out run and out gunned their opponents to date by a lopsided 115-12 point margin under field general starting QB Caeden Reiter.

The Raiders defense, after an offensive turnover on downs, would have their hands full from Saanich’s first possession when Reiter would put the ball in the hands of RB / Rec #22 Gerren Hardisty, who would scamper out of the back field and find a clear sideline path to the endzone for his first of two touchdowns in the half to set the tone. Jackson Reid would add a receiving touchdown to close out the half. The Wolverines would jump out to a 31-0 lead at halftime.

The Raiders would show sparks of defensive prowess in the second half, holding Saanich to only 2 touchdowns and force a turnover on downs against the home side. However, despite the defensive upturn in plugging up the middle on Saanich’s ground game, the Wolverines would add touchdowns by Payton Cardilicchia and Cole Bunting to put the game well out of reach with the 47-0 win.
