Barsby, NDSS win in blowouts

The rematch of last year’s provincial final turned out to be another mismatch. The John Barsby Bulldogs hammered the Handsworth Royals 30-6 on Friday in North Vancouver in AA varsity football action.

It was the first meeting between the two teams since last December’s B.C. final, when the ’Dawgs won 53-27.

Barsby has a bye week before it hosts the Windsor Dukes on Oct. 28.

The Nanaimo District Islanders, meanwhile, continue to roll over Tier 2 varsity competition. NDSS shut out the Moscrop Panthers 58-0 Friday at Nanaimo District Secondary School. It was ND’s second straight lopsided shutout win.

The Isles visit Eric Hamber Friday (Oct. 21). Next home action for ND is Oct. 28 against Howe Sound.
