Jr Glads hit the scoreboard in a big way
by Randy Pascal
Looking like at least some of the week one kinks have been worked out, the Sudbury Junior Varsity Gladiators evened their record at 1-1 last weekend,
bouncing the Brampton Bulldogs 42-6.
After being shutout in their season opener, the Jr Glads found almost every imagineable way of reaching the end zone in week two. Ryan McKinnon (2 yd run) and Tyler
Bell (15 yds) registered rushing majors, with Bell also on the receiving end of a 20 yard touchdown pass.
Joining Bell in that category were Lucas Howland (4 yds) and Robbie Zulich (30 yds), with quarterbacks Devin Zloty and Lucas Howland combining
to fire three aerial TD strikes.
The visitors also capitalized on some end zone sloppiness on the part of the Bulldogs, with Cole Kennedy recovering a missed field goal attempt that was
fumbled, while Kacey Thompson raced ten yards to paydirt when the ensuing kickoff was also mishandled by the Brampton returners.
Sudbury kicker Alex McNabb rounded out the scoring, nailing a field goal as well as making good on four of his convert attempts. Coach J.J. McKnight
and the boys are back at home this coming Saturday, but it's going to be a tough one.
The Scarborough Thunder provide the opposition for the 1:30 p.m. start time, with the Thunder already sitting at 2-0 thanks to victories over both the
Peterborough Wolverines (31-14) and the Quinte Bay Skyhawks (38-14).
