High school football double-header: Bulldogs ready for Fighting Irish, Rams host Handsworth

Mount Douglas Rams (3-0) host Handsworth Royals (2-0) at 1, Belmont Bulldogs (2-1) host Vancouver College Fighting Irish (2-2) 3:30 p.m.

It’s a good time to be bullish as the Belmont Bulldogs are hitting their stride at the right time of the season, coming off a 22-13 road win over the Notre Dame Jugglers (0-3) on Friday (Oct. 11).

The Bulldogs (2-1) host the Vancouver College Fighting Irish (2-2) at Goudy Turf on Friday at 3:30 p.m. It’s the second game of a AAA B.C. High School Football league double header, as the Mount Douglas Rams (3-0) host the Handsworth Royals (2-0) in the earlier game at 1 p.m.

Bulldogs coach Kevin Harrington knows the Fighting Irish are going to be a much stronger opponent than win-less Notre Dame. The Bulldogs should have scored two more touchdowns against Notre Dame on Friday, as two touchdown receptions were dropped.

“They were wide open. But hey, we played well and won anyways,” Harrington said.

Tight end Edgar Nelson caught two TD receptions from quarterback Sam Holland. Sam Varao rushed for a TD and 86 yards total, with Jordan Worth tacking on 100 yards rushed. Kicker Hugo Lewis converted two TDs and Worth ran in a two-point conversion.

Brady Lockwood made an interception in the first half and Jamie Pacheco, a D lineman, made another one to shut down Notre Dame’s final drive.

The Bulldogs will be too busy preparing to watch the Rams vs. Royals, which is ironic as they’re the Bulldogs remaining two opponents. The Bulldogs visit Handsworth on Oct. 25 and are at home to the Rams, Nov. 1 at Westhills Stadium.

The Rams continued its strong season as the No. 1-ranked team in B.C. defeated the top AA school South Delta 55-20 in exhibition play on Saturday.

Marcus Davis put on a clinic. In 11 touches, Davis scored on runs of 66, 15 and 24 yards, caught TD passes of 38 and 40 yards from QB Ashton MacKinnon, intercepted a South Delta pass and returned it 48 yards for a TD, and returned a kickoff 70 yards for a TD. Seven touchdowns. Julian Luis scored the other Rams touchdown.
