Mt. Boucherie Bears outclass improving Fulton Maroons

Mount Boucherie Bears of West Kelowna bounce Fulton Maroons 50-12 in junior varsity football play Wednesday at Grahame Park.

The Fulton Maroons have improved since they last faced the Mount Boucherie Bears, but not enough to earn a different result Wednesday afternoon at Grahame Park.

The Bears of West Kelowna bounced the Maroons 50-12, and continue to be the team to beat in the Okanagan Junior Varsity Football Conference.

“MBSS is an excellent football team,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “They are well coached, physical and have some talented athletes. They are head and shoulders above everyone in our conference.

“We stepped up and played tougher, and we had some success on offence. We moved the ball against them, and we are the only team to score on them this league season. Those are accomplishments our kids can be happy with.”

Supplying touchdowns for Fulton were Caden Doyle, on a 73-yard run, and Andrew Goldenthal, on a seven-yard interception return. Boucherie led 30-6 at the half.

Doyle finished with 91 rushing and 34 receiving yards, and added five tackles. Ike Olson went 4-for-11 passing for 51 yards and one interception. He delivered two sacks, and Anthony Prince contributed two tackles.

“Defensively, we had a very good third quarter and played them even,” said Scheller. “Our defence stepped up it’s intensity and Goldenthal made a great play on the pick six.”

Fulton, now 1-4, wraps up the season Wednesday against the Westsyde Blue Wave in Kamloops.

Meanwhile, the Vernon Panthers will play their first home game in five years when they host Fulton in varsity action Saturday, noon, at VSS.
