Last season ended perfectly, and this season has gotten off to a perfect start.
The John Barsby Bulldogs AA varsity team began its exhibition schedule Friday with a 36-0 shutout of the Holy Cross Crusaders at Beban Park’s Merle Logan Field.
The ’Dawgs, defending provincial champions, were honoured with the right to be a part of the new field’s opening ceremonies. Right away, they turned the turf game into a track meet, finishing with 322 rushing yards.
Nathan Berg led the offence with eight carries for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Jacob Odynsky added 93 yards and a TD on four carries and Brad Robson had five carries for 68 yards and a TD. Quarterback Isaac Mitchell was 3-for-8 with a touchdown pass to Dylan Sanford.
Defensively, Berg had five tackles and a sack and Jordan Kuziek, Robert Morris and Robson had six tackles each.
GAME ON … The Bulldogs’ next action is against Abbotsford Collegiate on the road Friday (Sept. 16).
