Atom Blue blank Meadow Ridge
Week three for the Atom Blue Giants was a week of redemption. Travelling to Meadow Ridge last Saturday, they came away with a 24-0 win over the Meadow Ridge Blue Knights, improving to 1-2 on the year.
Strong on both sides of the ball, as well as special teams, the Blues came to play. Running back DJ Stephens ran for more than 150 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Travis Richley was successful with some positive yards on the ground and hooked up with tight end Theo Smith in the passing game. Richley was also three-for-three kicking converts.
The blue defence was exceptional, constantly disrupting Meadow Ridge's backfield. Tackle Zach Wolter had two sacks and another six Tackles. Linebacker Raiden Mastin's blitzing and cornerback Jared Rahndorn's work on the corner helped keep Meadow Ridge off the board.
Atom Red crush Mission Niners
The Chilliwack Atom Red Giants walked into Mission on Saturday after a tough loss in Meadow Ridge a week ago, and walked out victors with a 36-0 win against the Mission Niners.
The rock-solid defence put up a shutout with huge performances from Mateo Tuioti and Raph Trill. The offence put up big points, due to huge improvement from the Red offensive line of Ty Cox, Ty Kelly, Isaac Tuioti, Ty Perotta and Ty Bergin. Touchdowns came from Nicolas Beck and Josh Caverley; receiver Jesse Reddick added some big catches, and Tuioti connected with Beck for a passing score.
Atom White come up short
The Chilliwack Atom White Giants team played an exceptional game despite being shorthanded Saturday against the North Langley Bears.
The Giants lost 44-22 despite the strong offensive and defensive performance.
Jackson Visser, Vincent Branauer and Austin Wegener all scored touchdowns, and Ben Uz added a pair of textbook field goals. The Giants' determination to get the ball resulted in a number of turnovers and led to scoring chances all morning. The diminutive Declan Redekop shone on defence, fearlessly taking down one of North Langley's biggest players.
Peewee Blue demolished
The Chilliwack Peewee Blue Giants were dominated by the Mission Niners Saturday, losing by a score of 37-0. The Giants had no answer for the unstoppable Niner's. The Giants will look to turn it around this weekend at home against the North Langley Bears.
Peewee Red edge out da Bears
The Peewee Red Giants went into Langley and came home with their first win of the season, beating the Bears 12-6. The Giants defence played an outstanding game, limiting the Langley Bears to just six points. The linebackers did a great job of shutting down the middle, and stellar play from corner backs Nathan McInnis and Coleman Hughes shut down the outside. Rhys Jones had a strong game at safety coming up with a great interception. Jackson Saunders scored both touch downs for the Giants.
Injuries hurt Jr. Bantams
Turnovers and injuries proved the undoing of the Chilliwack Junior Bantam Giants, who fell 38-21 Saturday to the North Langley Bears. The Bears scored early to take the lead but Giants running back Haden Oraschuk answered back two plays later with a 78-yard scamper down the sideline to tie the game. The JB Giants found themselves down 12-6 at halftime, but early in the third quarter Austin Kardux exploded for 80 yards on three carries to put the Giants on the one-yard line, from where Hudson Harvey punched it in behind the middle of the offensive line of Taylor Fleming, Jaiden Klassen and Kalum MacPherson. Kicker Dustin Wutzke added a two-point convert to give the Giants the lead.
The giants defence held their ground with huge tackles in the backfield by linebacker Helaman Ochoa, and halfback Josh Roos. Some great pass coverage included a critical pick by safety Mattias Chand.
Kardux added a third Giants touchdown on a big run to the outside, but multiple turnovers and injuries proved too much for the Giants defence in the fourth quarter as the Bears came back.
Midgets rout Maple Ridge
The Chilliwack Giants Midget team travelled to Maple Ridge, determined to avoid a disastrous 0-3 start to the 2013 campaign. It worked, as the team got off the schneid with a 30-0 rout of the Knights. It was a complete team win with contributions from all players.
Offensively, the Giants were led by all-star receiver Keenan Gooden, who hauled in two touchdowns. Two more majors were scored on quarterback sneaks by Hunter Larocque and R.J. Begg.
Steven Baker had a strong game running the ball, and a 24-yard field goal by Tyler McStravick rounded out the scoring.
Defensively, the Giants swarmed the Knights causing havoc all game. Almost every player on defence recorded a sack, and multiple fumbles were forced by the front seven. The secondary picked off the Knights quarterback four times, setting the offence up with good field position.
