Jennifer Smith/Morning Star Vernon Magnums’ Bachir Ige prepares for attack against Salmon Arm Colts’ Luke Mathieson in Southern Interior Football Conference Pee Wee play Sunday at Grahame Park.

Glennon magic Magnum

Slotback Liam Glennon led the Vernon Magnums to a 43-0 win over the Salmon Arm Colts.

Slotback Liam Glennon scored a 40-yard touchdown through the air, a 50-yard TD off a reverse and kicked four extra points as the Vernon Magnums ambushed the Salmon Arm Colts 43-0 in Southern Interior Football Conference Pee Wee action Sunday at Grahame Park.

The Magnums spread the ball around to five different receivers and six different ball carriers. Quarterback Zack Smith completed 6-of-9 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in just over a half before giving way to Ethan Anderson (2-of-3 for 45 yards and one TD).

“Our receivers were much sharper this week and are starting to understand the route concepts much better than earlier in the year and our QBs are making the right reads and getting it to the open man,” said head coach Sean Smith. “Our ability to stretch the field both vertically and horizontally is starting to free up our inside running game which is a plus.”

The Magnums, who led 27-0 at the half, got touchdowns from Glennon (2), Ondrik (2), Smith and Matthew Reich. Defensively, nose tackle Joey Mazzei (three tackles) was a disruptive force in the middle and Reich (six tackles, one sack) was all over the field making plays.

The Magnums (4-0), who have outscored their opponents 158-6, will enjoy a bye this week. Their next game is Sunday, Oct. 6 at Capital News Centre Field against the Kelowna Lions.

Vernon smothered the Lions 33-0 earlier this season, but expect a tougher test in two weeks.
