The Mission Secondary football program had a successful spring camp by taking both scrimmage games from Windsor Secondary.
After their most successful fall to date in 2010, in which they won the double A junior varsity provincial championship, and the varsity team made it to the semi-finals, the Roadrunners were looking to pick up where they left off in 2010.
The MSS JV team defeated Windsor’s JV team 16-12 in a hard-fought game on the brand new artificial field at Windsor secondary. Touchdowns were scored by Emmanuel Obasohan and Jesse Walker on a pass from Evan Horton. Horton was also a standout on defence, leading the team with 13 tackles.
After the JV game, the varsity Roadrunners defeated the Dukes 76-20.
The rushing attack was balanced between running backs Jesse Forcier (six carries for 101 yards and three touchdowns), Brenden Atkinson (90 yards and two touchdowns on six rushes), Parker Johston (79 yards and a touchdowns on seven carries), and QB Kevin Weins (five runs for 37 yards).
Weins completed an efficient 14 of 16 passing attempts for 206 yards and three touchdowns. He also hit receivers on four two-point converts.
Passing touchdowns were scored by Rhys Parry on a pass from Gr. 9 backup QB Evan Horton, and by Kristjan Jakobs and Daniel Ordyzuk.
Defensively, the Roadrunners were paced Zac Chamberland, Kyle Gautier, Hyatt Smith and Cam Purdy.
The Roadrunners will begin their ninth campaign on Sept. 2 when they travel to Washington State to take on North Kitsap, and coach Kevin Watrin said the team is excited about the potential for a very successful 2011 football season.
