Robby Filice collected three touchdowns, one of an interception, as the Kalamalka Lakers brushed back the host South Kamloops Titans 26-21 in high school senior boys football action Friday night.

Filice finished with 112 yards on 21 touches, and added 11 tackles and two picks on defence.

Karson Patommel was 14 carries for 106 yards, while his younger brother, Evan, hauled in two catches for 40 yards, including a 20-yard diving reception for a TD.

Austin Westgarde tweaked his leg early, but returned in the fourth quarter to help Kal’s defence stop the surging South Kamloops offence. Karson Patommel was also injured early, but came back to churn out a 50-yard run from deep in their zone.

Kal head coach Brad Yamaoka praised the efforts of Michael Filipenko, who had an amazing game at defensive end and running back, and quarterback Brendan Squair, who is emerging as a team leader.
