Mt. Boucherie defeats Mission 20-0 in week two action

The Mission Roadrunners came out completely flat in the club’s second regular season game, failing to generate any offence and falling 20-0 to the visiting Mt. Boucherie Bears in Mission on Saturday.

The Bears opened up a 12-0 lead at the half, and then added a safety and a 35-yard touchdown reception in the third to earn the win.

Roadrunners senior varsity head coach Danny Jakobs said errors cost his team the win.

“We had way too many mistakes, penalties, blown assignments and poor tackling today,” he said. “I think the two teams are pretty event but they capitalized on plays and we didn’t capitalize on anything today.”

Jakobs said Mission had a golden opportunity to get on the board down 12-0 in the first half, but failed to turn that red zone situation into points despite having a full set of downs inside the Bears 10 yard line.

“That really hurt,” he said. “We needed some momentum and we didn’t get any spark like that all game.”

The Bears second half touchdown saw the wide receiver break free and easily reach the end zone. Jakobs said those types of errors were typical for Mission in the game.

“That’s what the game was,” he said. “We can’t make mistakes like that and expect to win games.”

One bright spot in the game was Roadrunners quarterback Cash Mang, who came on in the second half in relief of starting quarterback Hamen Gill. Mang showed some promise in the pocket, completing several passes but the drives were stalled by turnovers.

“He’s a young QB with a good arm,” Jakobs said. “He’s a Grade 11 – so he’s got a ways to go, but that was some good quality time for him.”

Mission’s record falls to 1-1 in BCHSB AAA regular season play. They next travel to Surrey to take on the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers on Friday.
