Bighorns plan fan rally

Playoffs are coming up quickly, and the Bighorns are looking for your support.

The Columbia Valley Bighorns football team cemented their second place status with a 28-7 win over Penticton October 23.

The offensive star of the game for the Bighorns was Ryley Purdy, and the defensive player of the game was Cole Heide.

This Friday, October 28, the Bighorns will hold a fan appreciation night at Bighorns Field from 7 to 8 p.m. following their practice, in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Cranbrook Rams.

Coach Bruce Marlow wants to see their biggest crowd of the season, so come out and support your local football team both on game day and on fan appreciation night.

There will be a barbecue, and other items will be sold to help raise funds for the Bighorns season.

The playoffs begin the following weekend, and with Columbia Valley in second place, they will play Penticton once again for a chance to advance to the provincial championships in Kamloops.
