The Nanaimo Redmen got major contributions from all areas in another lopsided victory. The city’s Vancouver Mainland Football League team (6-2) thrashed the Vancouver Trojans 58-0 on Sunday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park in the final home game of the regular season.
Nanaimo’s offence built a huge lead from the opening kickoff, the defence held for a second-straight shutout and special teams, as usual, contributed a TD as well.
Kalden Keen led the offence with a hat trick of touchdowns, two along the ground and one a receiving TD from Todd Hansen. Jonah Wassell threw two touchdowns to start the game, one to Jordan Pugh and one to Alex Kutra. Other majors were scored by Cam Nesvog and Brodie Squire, on run plays, and Jaxxen Wylie on a 44-yard punt return.
GAME ON … The Redmen have two more games remaining, both on the road. Next up is a matchup on Lulu Island this Sunday (Oct. 30) against the Richmond Raiders (1-7).
