The Nanaimo District Islanders will carry lots of momentum into the regular season.
The NDSS AA varsity football team won big Friday, defeating the AAA Earl Marriott Mariners 38-20 at Merle Logan Field.
“I thought we came out good, I think next time we can come out stronger, though. We can do a lot better than that,” said Maren Bradbrooke, NDSS quarterback.
He had two rushing touchdowns as well as a passing TD to Reece Maddison. Donovan Davidson-Collie and Liam Colbourne also scored rushing majors and Dakota Moonshadow returned an interception for a touchdown.
Maddison was ND’s top tackler with eight.
Look for an Islanders season preview later this week in the News Bulletin.
