September 9, 2016, Victoria, BC (ISN) – The Mt. Douglas Rams Junior Varsity football team started their 2016 pre-season in fine fashion Friday afternoon with a 27-0 blanking of the Barsby Bulldogs at Mt. Douglas High School Field in Victoria.
The game would never be in doubt for the Rams, as they held Barsby on the first possession of the game and then struck quickly for touchdowns on their next two possessions, both coming from running back Sam Mosky, the first on an 18-yard run, the second on a 68-yard run off the first play of their second possession.
After that, the Rams and quarterback Gideone Kremler took to the air for their next two scores, with Kremler hooking up with Dante Carbone on a25-yard swing pass and run to make it 20-0 and then closing the first half with a 15-yard pass to Zairech Kremler, Gideone’s brother to make it 27-0.
In the second half, the Rams defence took over and while Barsby would threaten in the red zone numerous times, the Rams kept the Bulldogs out of the end zone, most notably on the Bulldogs last possession, when Jordan Clark came up with an interception in the end zone and returned it all the way downfield for an apparent score, only to see it nullified by a penalty.
The Rams kept possession however and easily killed the clock the rest of the way to preserve the shut-out victory.
Next up for the JV squad will be a match against the always tough Vancouver College, at 12:30 pm on Friday, September 23 at the Mt. Doug Field.
