An undermanned Pitt Meadows Marauders junior varsity football team was overwhelmed by the bigger and faster Seaquam Seahawks in exhibition play Wednesday.

The host Marauders, who play in the AA division, only had 17 players dressed for the game against the AAA Seahawks from North Delta and lost 45-14.

The Marauders struggled to stop the run initially before putting up some offence in the second half.

Head coach Matt Todd said he told his team to wipe the first half from their memories and get back to basics.

“I like what I saw. They played much better in the second half. They stayed on their blocks and we were able to generate some offence.

Reece Hansford scampered for two touchdowns on 154 yards of rushing, most of which came in the second half.

On defence, Tayden Mountford lead the team with seven tackles while William Bartolo chipped in with five.

The junior varsity Marauders travel to Abbotsford to play the W.J. Mouat Hawks on Thursday, Sept. 24. Kick off is at 5:30 p.m.

• The Marauders senior team plays Ballenas Whalers Friday, Sept. 18 at 3 p.m. at Pitt Meadows secondary.
