The top-ranked Double A team, the Vernon Panthers, will face last year’s Double A Subway Bowl champion, the John Barsby Bulldogs, in what should be a very exciting semi-final match up.
In last week’s 36-6 win over Abbotsford, the Panthers were led offensively by Zac Kronbauer. Kronbauer rushed for 70 yards, caught a 46 yard touchdown pass from quarterback John Garvie, and also returned an interception 60 yards for a score. Even more impressive was the team’s defensive efforts led by Karson Patommel, who recorded six tackles and a forced fumble. Carson Labrecque (five tackles and one sack) and Ben Hladik (five tackles and two sacks) also came up huge for the Panthers.
The Bulldogs, who are coming off a close 27-24 win over Seaquam, were led by Cole Virtanen, who was crucial in the team’s win. Virtanen rushed 19 times for 135 yards and three touchdowns in the game, while Trentyn Anderson carried 14 times for 130 yards and caught a touchdown pass from quarterback North Rainey. On defence, Virtanen again proved critical with 13 tackles while Parker Bowles recorded 12 tackles in the game.
