JV Roadrunners decimate SRT Titans 42-0

The junior varsity football team starts its playoff run this Wednesday

Quarterback Jesse Walker accounted for five touchdowns last Wednesday against Samuel Robinson Technical’s Titans in the 42-0 win for the Mission secondary junior varsity team.

“We really feel like we have found our A-game heading into playoffs,” said coach John Kapty, adding the two previous games proved the team’s strength, with wins of 40-7 and 52-0. “If we continue to play well, we think we have a good shot at getting some big playoff wins.”

In the last game of league play — in which the Roadrunners went 4-2-0 on the season — Walker also scored a 59-yard punt return and threw a 22-yard pass to Inderpreet Herr.

Running back Bryce Fillion was a standout on the wet field, scoring on runs of 10 and 19 yards, and rushing for 145 yards in total.

Bicky Gill and Landon Rayburn had interceptions on defense, and Dayton Robertson and Peter Kulba each had six tackles.

The Roadrunners’ first round of playoffs star Wednesday against Carson Graham.

“They are the number one seed and we go in as a number two due to two tight losses earlier,” said Kapty.
