Spartans romp in bantam football game


SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Waterwise Spartans may have dominated on both sides of the ball, but it wasn’t the final score that caught the eye of head coach John Turner.

The Spartans defeated the Charlottetown Privateers 62-6 in a Papa John’s P.E.I. Bantam Tackle Football League game that was played in rainy and windy conditions at Eric Johnston Field on Friday night.

“What might be more impressive than our performance on offence and defence is the fact that in those monsoon conditions we did not put the ball on the ground,” beamed Turner. “That says something about our focus.”

Offensively

Offensively, Cameron Wall, Caleb Dawson and Ethan Beaulieu all scored a pair of touchdowns. Brandon Gaudet, Charlie DesRoches and Charlie Turner hit the end zone once.

“We told the boys to enjoy this win, but get ready for a good week of practice as we have a big game this Friday night against the Eastern Kings Steelers, who have a lot of players back from last season,” added Spartans defensive co-ordinator Jeff MacDonald. “It should be a great game.”

The opening kickoff at Eric Johnston Field is scheduled for 6 p.m. It is also a rematch of last year’s Hilton Bowl championship game, which the Spartans won 50-18.
