Ladysmith Steelers wrap up their season Sat., Nov. 10 at home

The Steelers pee wee and junior bantam football teams take on Campbell River Sat., Nov. 10 at Forrest Field.

It was a wet, muddy, windy game at Parksville, as the Ladysmith Steelers battled the Oceanside Lions in Pee Wee football on Sun., Nov. 4.

At the end of a tough game, the Pee Wee Steelers lost 12-6, with the only touchdown coming from Ryker Pearson.

“Our pee wee team played a good game against a tough, big opponent,” noted coach Demetreos Bourodemos.

Highlights of the game included strong defensive play by Isaiah Coyne, Kieran Morneau and Dru Wright and an interception by Jordan Day.

The Junior Bantam Steelers battled through but fell 28-6 to Oceanside.

Bourodemos says strong play on both sides of the ball by Kendra Francis, Nick Derkoch, Karl Lofstrom and Kayle Winter stood out.

The losses in Parksville come one week after the Steelers went 1-1 in Courtenay.

The Pee Wee Steelers defeated Courtenay 36-6 on Oct. 27.

Felice Toscano and Ryan Bastion scored two touchdowns each, while Pearson and Dawson Cavey scored one each. Christian Toscano scored twice and Cavey scored one extra point conversion.

Bourodemos says defensive standouts were Dustin Jeanson, Pearson, Russell Robinson Jr. and Wright.

“These four players contributed to the majority of tackles for the Steel Curtain Defense that allowed only one score,” he said.

The Junior Bantams played a very tough Courtney opponent and came out on the losing end of a 26-6 score.

Derkoch scored the Steelers’ touchdown, while Joseph Coyne, Winter and Francis provided strong defensive play.

The Ladysmith Steelers play their final games of the season against Campbell River this Saturday (Nov. 10) at Forrest Field. The Pee Wee Steelers play at 10:30 a.m., while the Junior Bantams hit the field at 12:30 p.m.
