The Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops dispatched the Fulton Maroons 24-6 in Interior Senior High School Football League play Friday night at Greater Vernon Athletics Park.

Koalden Gudeit-Oakden scored on a two-yard plunge in the second quarter for the Maroons.

Gudeit-Oakden finished with 16 touchs for 76 yards, while Colton Annis rang up 23, yards on six carries and Caden Doyle had 10 yards on eight runs.

Noah Alleyne completed one of eight passes for five yards (catch by Doyle).

“This was a good effort from our team,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “The coachng staff was happy with the way we played for most of the game. The score was 8-6 at half, and we were in it right up ‘till the end. but, it became the same old story for our club. We stalled on offense and could not move the ball.

“Then, we got tired on defence and the other team just ground us down. We have played every game against teams that can physically overpower us, and that is how we lose. Teams just grind us out and it is difficult to stop. I will credit our kids; they worked and fought all game. It just was not enough.”

Ike olson recorded eight tackles, while Mykl Drabiuk compiled six and JJ Heaton and Annis each earned six. Gudeit-Oakden had five.

“Our offensive line fired off the ball very well and blocked hard,” added Scheller. “Line coaches Darryl Thomas, Ben Olson and Kevin Breiter have worked really hard and have done a good job with these kids. Gurwinder Dhanoa, Andrew Goldenthal, Quinn Miller, JJ Heaton and Anthony Prince all played very well for us up front. Gudeit had his best game as a Maroon. We put him at tailback and he ran very well. I like his vision and toughness.”

On defence, Olson led the Maroons once again.

“Ike Olson had a great game blocking on offence and was a tackling machine. He is our toughest kid and shows up week in and week out. Mykl Drabiuk was tough at linebacker and had some good hits. Noah Alleyne and Kobe Romanovitch stepped up and played well at corner for us.”

Fulton takes on the VSS Panthers in Friday Night Lights football (6 p.m.) at the new college field to finish the regular season.

“Despite the opposite records, our kids will be fired up for the game. It should be a good night for football.”

VSS took on the South Kam Titans Saturday.
