The Westsyde Blue Wave rolled over the Fulton Maroons 30-14 in Interior Senior Boys AA Football League action Friday night at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops.
Both teams had short rosters with most players going both ways in a battle that was 17-7 Blue Wave at the half.
This was a bad loss in a season of bad losses,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller.
“We have played a very tough exhibition schedule and have been outmatched in many of our games. The teams we have played have been better than us and simply physically better. Westsyde is a team we matched up very well with, and frankly, we had a great shot at winning this game and should have. Westsyde wanted it more and played tougher.”
Isaac olson rambled in from three yards for Fulton’s first touchdown, while Ryan Rumsey scored on a 31-yard romp in the third quarter. Kyle Karens was 2-for-2 on convert attempts.
Ethan Eisenhauer recorded two interceptions, while Olson rang up eight tackles and Mykl Drabiuk and Rumsey each earned six.Eric Yildiz David and JJ Heaton each produced four tackles.
“JJ Heaton played tough at d line as did Ike Olson,” said Scheller. “I appreciate the consistent effort that Andrew Goldenthal and Anthony Prince give us on a daily basis in games and in practice.
“We are 0-7 for the first time in our history, and this is the worst record we have ever had. That falls on me as the head coach, as we need to get better. Our assistants are working hard to improve this team.”
Fulton hosts Valleyview Friday, 5 p.m., at the Greater Vernon Athletics Park.
