Owls and Bears in gridiron battle Friday

Two local rivals meet in B.C. high school football action in a 4 p.m. kick off at CNC

Bragging rights for high school football in the Central Okanagan will be on the line Friday at the Capital News Centre.

At 4 p.m. the Kelowna Owls will take on the Mt. Boucherie Bears in the lone meeting between the teams this season.

The Owls are at 3-2, while the Bears are 3-3 in B.C.’s Eastern Conference. Both schools have already qualified for the 2014 post-season.

The winner will improve its seeding with the playoffs just around the corner.

KSS is coming off an impressive 38-16 victory over the Centennial Centaurs last Friday at the Apple Bowl.

Quarterback Parker Simson ran for a pair of first half majors and threw TD pass to Seth Campbell as the Owls built up a healthy 24-6 lead at the break.

Simson added this third TD of the day in the second half, before Callum Reid connected with Campbell on a 34-yard pass for the Owls final score of the day.

On defense, Simson had five tackles and an interception, while Nick Tran and Zack Vint added five tackles apiece.

In other action Friday, the Bears saw their two-game win streak end in a 28-18 loss at the Apple Bowl to Lord Tweedsmuir (4-1).

On Saturday, the No. 1 ranked Terry Fox Ravens defeated the Rutland Voodoos 72-0. This Friday at 6:30 p.m., the Voodoos (0-5) will look for their first when they battle Centennial at CNC.
