Crazy Legs led the Vernon Magnums to an impressive minor football victory Sunday.

Quarterback Zack Smith – Crazy Legs, to coaches and teammates – ran twice for 55 yards and a touchdown, breaking a ridiculous number of tackles along the way, and was 7-for-7 through the air for 144 yards and three TDs as the Magnums rolled the West Kelowna Ti-Cats 51-13 at West Kelowna’s sparkling new community field.

Isaiah Ondrik scored twice for the Magnums, catching three passes for 75 yards, as well as successfully kicking the converts and a late field goal. He also made some key tackles on defence.

Liam Gombrich, looking like Seattle stud Marshawn Lynch, broke tackle after tackle, rushing three times for 75 yards with a touchdown, his third in two weeks.

Trent Charlton ran twice for 24 yards and caught four passes for 25 yards, putting another six points on the scoreboard.  Matthew Reich caught a 45-yard TD pass from Smith.

Ethan Mitchell, Devin Hofsink and Ethan Shiman were also great playmakers for the Magnums. Connor Dewhirst was tough on the O and D lines.

Newcomer Sarah Jobagy was instrumental in stopping a Ti-Cat touchdown at the end of the game.
