Redmen offence stalls in loss

The Nanaimo Redmen have a lot of facets of the game working. They just can’t seem to score touchdowns. The city’s Vancouver Mainland Football League team (4-2) was defeated 16-2 by the Coquitlam Falcons on Sunday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park.

The Nanaimo Redmen have a lot of facets of the game working. They just can’t seem to score touchdowns.

The city’s Vancouver Mainland Football League team (4-2) was defeated 16-2 by the Coquitlam Falcons on Sunday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park.

For the third straight week, the offence was held without a touchdown (the red team has two special teams touchdowns during that span).

They led Sunday’s game 2-1 early in the fourth quarter.

“We moved the ball quite effectively. We just can’t seem to be consistent enough to finish off drives,” said Sean Roden, the team’s coach.

Running back Kalden Keen had a strong game, Taylor Saine made tackles all over the field on defence and special teams and linebacker Ethan Schulz also played well in the loss.

GRID BITS … Nanaimo visits the Cowichan Bulldogs on Sunday (Oct. 16) at 3 p.m. at Duncan’s McAdam Park. Next home action for the Redmen is the following weekend, when the Vancouver Trojans visit Pioneer Park for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
