Magnums bust past Broncos

The Vernon Peters Tirecraft Magnums blitzed the Kamloops Broncos 39-0 in Pee Wee football playoff action.

The Vernon Peters Tirecraft Magnums spread out the offence as they opened the Southern Interior Pee Wee Football Conference playoffs Sunday afternoon.

The Magnums got touchdowns from four different players as they lassoed the Kamloops Broncos 39-0 at Grahame Park. Noteworthy offensive performances were turned in by Ethan Mitchell, Fraser O’Brien, Michael Swanson and Kohl Killingbeck, who combined to rush for 247 yards.

The Magnums shut down Kamloops’ attack through solid defensive efforts by Taber McLean, Quinn Thiessen, Thomas Neid-Blenkin and Rasheed Hashi.

The Magnums visit the Colts in Salmon Arm this weekend in second-round action.

In Junior Bantam playoff action, the Magnums also got off to a tremendous first-round start, pummelling the Kelowna Riders 41-0 Sunday at Grahame.

Quarterback Zack Smith racked up 165 passing yards to go along with 80 rushing yards, including a touchdown. Isaiah Ondrik turned in a fantastic two-way effort, supplying three touchdowns, a field goal, four tackles and a sack.

Vernon’s O-line played great and received some nice pass blocks from Ethan Schiman.

Other standout efforts came from Trey Winstanley (40 yards rushing, 27-yard TD, four tackles) and Charles Lemay (five tackles, interception).

“This game was a total team effort. We seem to be peaking at the right time,” said offensive coordinator Brian Craig. “Our defence hasn’t been scored on in the last two games and the offence is running on all cylinders.”

Vernon hosts the Kelowna Mission Lions in semifinal play Sunday, 2 p.m., at Grahame.

The Atom Magnums bowed out of the playoffs after a 32-14 loss to the host Kamloops Broncos on Sunday.

Vernon dropped its first three games of the season, but turned it around big-time to win their last three. Atom Magnums include: Aiden Lawrence, Brady Devries, Brayden (Balraj) Khun Khun, Carston Disher, Dillian Rinkel, Dominick Kitzman, Grady Krause, Gunnar Nyberg, Hudson Kibblewhite, Issiaha Grant, Jace Collard, Jaedon Graig, Landon Ramsey, Lochlen Kilford, Morgan Hackman, Nate Yablonski, Reid Williamson and Seth Holte.
