Marauders swat Hornets in Surrey

Marauders opened their exhibition season by thoroughly dominating the Frank Hurt Hornets

Haden Harty rushes for 264 yards and three TDs.

The Pitt Meadows Marauders opened their exhibition season by thoroughly dominating the Frank Hurt Hornets in a 26-6 win in varsity AA football action Friday in Surrey.

Marauders running back Haden Harty ran roughshod over an overmatched Hornets defence, scoring three touchdown while amassing 264 yards on the ground on 19 carries.

Grade 10 standout Brandon Hunt chipped in with the other touchdown, gaining 70 yards on the ground.

As dominating as the offense was, the defence stuffed the Hornets offence for most of the day.

Sim Misceo led the team with seven tackles and a fumble recovery early in the third quarter.

Harty chipped in with six tackles, while Bailey Mountford and Drake Kindred each contributed with five.

The Marauders will face a much stiffer test when they continue their exhibition season Friday, Sept. 18, when they host the Ballenas Whalers at 2 p.m. at Pitt Meadows secondary.

The Whalers lost a shootout to the the Mission Roadrunners 62-61 in league semi-final action in 2014.

• The Junior Varsity Marauders kick off their exhibition season when they host the Seaquam Sehawks on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 3:35 p.m.
