The SRSS JV Sabres, following an emotional pre-game ceremony yesterday in Steinbach, aptly turned in their best performance of the season as they crushed the St. Paul's Crusaders 34-0.

The Sabres had a moment of silence prior to the game and played in honour and in memory of their offensive line coach Brian Kobylak, affectionately known as Coach Koby, who passed away suddenly last weekend.

With yesterday's big win, the Sabres improved to 3-1 in the WHSFL Junior Varsity standings.

Late in the first quarter, with St. Paul's deep in the SRSS zone and threatening to score the game's first touchdown, the Sabres defence stood tall as St. Paul's turned the ball over. The Sabres quickly responded with a pair of lenghty running plays and then punched in the game's first touchdown on the final play of the first quarter, and the rout was on.

Leading the offence was receiver Jayden Martens, who caught three passes from QB Austin Dueck for 95 yards and two touchdowns.

The Sabres also benefited from a two-pronged running attack that saw Christian Ginter garner 57 yards on eight carries and a touchdown while Avery Penner ran for 52 yards on seven carries and a touchdown.

The shutout defensive performance was again led by Skyler Wilkinson who had numerous tackles and also recoved a fumble for a touchdown. Jayden Pozniak and Thomas Peters added quarterback sacks while Bryson Friesen had an interception.

Next week, the JV Sabres will face their stiffest test of the season as they take on the 4-0 Vincent Massey Trojans Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 4:30 p.m. at Vincent Massey in Winnipeg.

Meanwhile, the varsity Sabres return to action Friday night in Winnipeg as they take on the Grant Park Pirates at 7:30 p.m. at Investors Group Field. There will be a $5.00 gate admission at the game, with proceeds to the United Way.
