The Nanaimo District Islanders won big Friday, defeating the AAA Earl Marriott Mariners 38-20 at Merle Logan Field.

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.
