Mates pound Hour Glass in Flag Football showdown
The showdown didn't live up to its original billing.
Dam Inn Mates scored early and often en route to crushing Nelson Hour Glass 34-6 in West Kootenay Men's Flag Football League action Sunday at the Mount Sentinel Field.
The game was billed as a showdown between the league's two undefeated teams.
Mates quarterback Kelly Voykin had an easy time picking apart the Hour Glass defence, connecting with four touchdown passes to Ryan Boisvert, Kyle Niminiken, Jesse Lucas and John Parker.
Voykin also rushed for a major score while connecting fror two single-point conversions. The only blemish on Voykin's was an interception.
On the defensive side of the ball Nate Fedorchuk had three interceptions while Jesse lucas registered on sack for a safety.
In the other game, the Brewers blasted the Castlegar Vikings in a battle of the two cellar dwellers.
Action resumes Sunday at Mount Sentinel with Brewers meeting Hour Glass at 11 a.m. and Vikings playing undefeated Dam Inn Mates at 1 p.m.
The Mates/Vikings contest is a rematch of last year's league final won by Dam Inn.
