A week after being humbled in a 37-0 shutout by the Mt. Boucherie Bears, the Kelowna Owls made amends with a convincing performance against the crosstown rival Rutland Voodoos.

The Owls (2-1) dominated on both sides of the ball on Friday night at the Apple Bowl en route to a 44-0 win over Rutland in B.C. high school football action.

Eli Haynes and Darrion Bunce caught touchdown passes from KSS quarterback Shawn Gordon, who scored the game’s opening major on a two-yard plunge.

Hudsen Anderson and Dele Oyelese each added a touchdown on the ground, while Jackson Lowe scored the other major on a 32-yard interception return.

Lowe and Haynes each had two of the Owls’ five picks in the game, while Brodie Couch had the other.

“Both sides of the ball worked really well,” said Owls coach Shane Sommerfeld.

The Owls will travel to Salmon Arm Friday to take on the winless Golds.

The Voodoos (1-2) will meet the unbeaten Mt. Boucherie Bears Friday at 6:30 at the Apple Bowl.

Boucherie Bears 42 Salmon Arm 8

The Mt. Boucherie Bears gave up their first points of the Okanagan AAA regular season on Friday but still cruised to their third straight win, 42-8 over the hometown Salmon Arm Golds.

Josiah Joseph threw four touchdowns passes for the Bears, two to Carter Young and one each to Peter Briker and Josh Livingston. Joe Court had the biggest play from scrimmage with a 92-yard run for a touchdown, while Zack Kinnunen added another TD on the ground.

Jordan Dietrich-Scammell, Dakota Spiess and Cole Geisler made interceptions, Nathan Buonomo Curtis Urlacher and Max Sutherland recorded sacks, and Carter Young had a fumble recovery.

The Bears (3-0) will battle Rutland Friday at 6:30 p.m.

In JV action, the Bears beat Salmon Arm 28-12.
