SRT defender Cade Cote forces a Holy Cross Crusader fumble in the third quarter in their 26-6 loss on Wednesday.

The Pitt Meadows Marauders went into the home of the 2014 defending junior varsity champs and came out with a 35-0 win.

The Marauders thrashed the G.W. Graham Grizzlies on the back of quarterback Tato Ferreyro, who threw for 270 yards and four TDs.

Reece Handsford and Brandon Hunt combined to run for 170 yards. Handsford caught two TDs and rushed for another. Hunt had 115 yards receiving and one TD through the air and rushed for one. Tayden Mountford also caught a TD to go with his 81 receiving yards.

Head coach Matt Todd said a big part of the offence’s success was a direct result of offensive linemen Angus MacDonald, Cole Leon and Luke Rattenbury. He said his defence was equally impressive.

“We stuffed the run early and forced them to pass early,” said Todd.

Giovanni Manu led the way with two sacks, a fumble recovery, one batted ball and four tackles. William Bartolo had four tackles and Caleb Kinney made his debut on at defensive end and had a fumble recovery.

Titans fall at home

The SRT Titans dropped a hard fought 26-6 decision to the Holy Cross Crusaders at home on Wednesday.

Brayden Hamilton scored the lone TD after a fumble recovery by Jevon Anutooshkin.

Ryley Swain, Markus Kot and Anutooshkin led the team on defence.
