The Junior Varsity Sun Devils competed an impressive 8-1 season (4-1 in conference play) with a 34-13 win over the Seaquam Seahawks on Wednesday, night Nov. 1 at John Oliver Park.
But the Sun Devils are not done by any means, as they have higher goals to achieve when the playoffs start with their opening round game on Nov. 9 against Rutland Secondary.
The game is set for 2 p.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park.
“This was a great game for us in that everyone on the roster got in for quite a few plays,” said head coach Scott Martens. “We also avoided any significant injuries heading towards the playoffs, which is certainly a good thing.”
The Sun Devils scored early and often against Seaquam opening up a 27-0 lead by half-time. Miles Crowle scored his first TD of the season on a nice 23-yard pass from Quinn Sjoberg.
Damian Dumas scored on a 54-yard run and Hudson Robinson scored for the first time this season as well off a four-yard pass from Rylan Chima.
Jarred Brown finished the first-half scoring catching a one-yard TD pass from Chima.
Seaquam scored a TD in the third and early in the fourth to cut the deficit to 27-13, but Sjoberg completed the scoring catching a 13-yard pass from Dumas.
“I think top to bottom our conference was the toughest and I think that will bode well for us moving forward in the playoffs,” said Martens, adding he has not seen too much film yet on Rutland. “I think it’s going to be a favourable match-up for us, but in saying that, we will not take anything for granted. We will prepare as we always do – watch lots of film and treat them like they are the toughest team in the league.”
