Davron Polok of the Fulton Maroons tries to fend off Keegan Christian of the Salmon Arm Golds in senior AA boys football action Tuesday afternoon at Grahame Park.

Fulton Maroons tie Golds

The Salmon Arm Golds tied the Fulton Maroons 14-14 in exhibition high school football action Tuesday at Grahame Park.

The Salmon Arm Golds scored on a short pass with 26 seconds remaining to tie the Fulton Maroons 14-14 in exhibition high school football action Tuesday at Grahame Park.

Davron Polok scampered 60 yards for a touchdown on Fulton’s opening drive and later added a 48-yard running score. Polok racked up 176 yards on 15 touches. Caleb McCuaig booted both converts.

Quarterback Tye Kitzman completed four of nine passes for 29 yards with one interception. He also ran nine times for 61 yards. Max Chapman caught a 17-yard pass.

Carson Deboer led the Fulton defence with 13 tackles, while Trevor Feeney supplied eight and Sikandar Ahmad and Polok eac registered six.

Deboer, Kitzman, Mike Williamson and McCuaig each produced picks.

“It was an even game throughout and went back and forth,” said Maroons’ head coach Mike Scheller. “We had some great drives offensively. When we execute properly, we do quite well. However, we do not execute consistently enough to be an effective offence.

“We either miss an assignment or commit a penalty. Davron Polok had a great game at tailback and ran very hard. He made some nice runs for us. I was happy with the way guards Ahmad and Deboer played.”

The Golds scored on a razzle-dazzle trick play but the Fulton defence otherwise turned in a stellar showing.

“Deboer was great at defensive end and made a ton of plays for us. Cornerback Luc Mitchell defended the pass well. Feeney was good at inside backer and Romello Coufal had his highest tackle output of the season (4).”

The Maroons are 2-2-2 overall and 1-1 in league play. They visit the Westsyde Blue Wave tonight (7:30) at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops. The VSS Panthers battle the Valleyview Vikings in the early 5 p.m. game at Hillside.
