The Barsby Bulldogs will take a running start into the regular season.

John Barsby Community Secondary School’s AA varsity football team won its final pre-season game 40-0 on Friday at Merle Logan Field, shutting down Abbotsford Collegiate.

The Bulldogs were coming off a rare loss as they had fallen 40-36 the previous week to Victoria’s AAA Mt. Doug Rams in a matchup that some lauded as the game of the year, even though it was just the first exhibition.

A week later it took the ’Dawgs a little while to gain traction before they pulled away. Duc Truong had a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown and Brandon Parker gained 129 yards on 12 carries and also scored a rushing TD. Other players to score run majors were Jacob Odynsky and Dexter Shea. QB Brody Taylor was 3-for-3 passing. Defensively, Odynsky had nine tackles; Shea had five.

GAME ON … The Bulldogs kick off the regular season Friday (Sept. 21) in North Vancouver against the Carson Graham Eagles … The Nanaimo District Islanders play their regular-season opener that same day in North Van against Argyle. The Isles beat G.P. Vanier 28-12 Friday in exhibition action at NDSS.
