It wasn’t a game filled with offensive fireworks, but the first B.C. Secondary Schools Football Association all-star game proved a fine farewell for many of the province’s top seniors Saturday at B.C. Place Stadium.
In a low-scoring affair, the East scored the first three touchdowns of the game en route to a 20-6 win over the West.
Ballenas Whalers’ quarterback Ben Chomolok opened the scoring on a short draw play.
Ty Martens, the quarterback at Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman, added a major off a two-yard run for a 14-0 halftime run.
In the second half, Rutland running back Jhavoun Blake made it 20-0 with a six-yard run.
The West prevented being shut out of the proceedings when Kelowna Owls’ quarterback Nate Beauchemin scored off a one-yard keeper in final three minutes of play.
