Mount Doug Rams hold down national No. 1 spot after blowout win

Mount Douglas Rams homecoming game scheduled for Friday at Westhills Stadium

The Mount Douglas Rams sit atop this week’s national rankings, following a 51-0 win over New Westminster in B.C. High School Football play Friday.

The Rams (1-0-0), the lone B.C. team on the top 10 list (canadafootballchat.com), got on the board early against the Hyacks at Langford’s Westhills Stadium, when Julian Luis scrambled in for a 14-yard touchdown score on the opening play from scrimmage. The Rams’ Mack Wegenast recovered a New West fumble on the opening kickoff to give the home team good field position.

From there it was all Rams, as they built a 28-0 halftime lead, and increased it to 41-0 after three quarters.

Marcus Davis caught a 29-yard TD pass from Ashton McKinnon and returned a punt 59 yards for a score to lead the attack. Luis also finished with a pair of touchdowns, while Sean Farinu, on a five-yard run, Alexis Keppene with a two-yard catch, and Sean Waugh, with a 50-yard punt return, added singles.

Callum Duke kicked six converts and a 26-yard field goal to round out the scoring.

While the Rams were racking up the touchdowns at Westhills, the Belmont Bulldogs were doing their part at nearby Goudy Field, hammering the West Vancouver Highlanders 41-0 to keep pace with Mount Doug in the league’s Western Conference standings.

The Rams play their homecoming game this Friday back at West-hills against divisional rival Notre Dame.

Game time is 2:30 p.m. Non-perishable food items are being collected for the Mustard Seed food bank.

Belmont is on the road that day for a game against New West.
