Horton paces Roadrunners past Grizzlies

Roadrunners to face Hurricans in Mission Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

Evan Horton had a hand in five touchdowns as the Mission Secondary Roadrunners blasted the G.W. Graham Grizzlies of Chilliwack 55-27 in senior high school football action last Friday.

The Roadrunners’ quarterback rushed for 90 yards and four TDs, and threw a scoring pass to Jesse Walker as Mission improved to 3-0 in AA Eastern Conference play.

Walker also threw a TD pass to Wayde Carpenter, who was a dual threat with 133 receiving yards and 66 rush yards.

Eric Heckhausen and Dayton Robertson each added rushing majors, while defensive leaders included Horton (six tackles, one interception, one sack), Heckhausen (six tackles), Quinton Cottrill (five tackles) and Reilly DeMarco (fumble recovery).

The AA No. 3-ranked Roadrunners host the No. 5 Rick Hansen Hurricanes in a huge match-up on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Both teams are undefeated, and the outcome will go a long way towards deciding first place in the Eastern Conference.
