Bighorns quarterback Ryley Purdy had another good game Sunday

Bighorns ‘dominate’ in weekend play

By a score of 47-1, the Columbia Valley Bighorns football team demolished the Cranbrook Rams Sunday October 16 at Bighorns Field.


By a score of 47-1, the Columbia Valley Bighorns football team demolished the Cranbrook Rams Sunday October 16 at Bighorns Field. Bighorns player David Weismiller was spectacular in the win, catching several long touchdown throws from quarterback Ryley Purdy and returning another interception for a score on defence.

“We’re the Bighorns and we dominate the Rams — that’s what the key today was,” Bighorns coach Bruce Marlow said, when asked what the key to victory was. “We did very well, I wish we would’ve gotten some of our younger players on the field, but 47-1 … I’ll take it.”

The Bighorns dominated the game throughout, with the Bighorns defence not allowing a Rams first down until midway through the second quarter. Time and time again the Bighorns took advantage of great field position  to set up what became a varied attack, with quarterback Ryley Purdy gaining yards through the air and with his feet against a game but overworked Rams defence.

Next up on the schedule is a game against the Penticton Cougars October 23, before the Cranbrook Rams once again visit Bighorns Field October 30.
