Mitch Kopp was virtually unstoppable and so were his West Kelowna RedBlacks en route to the 2014 B.C. junior bantam 9-man football championship.

The RedBlacks, who won the Southern Interior title a week earlier, defeated the Prince George Blackjacks 36-6 on Saturday in the provincial final in Kamloops.

Kopp scored five touchdowns, four on the ground and one on a pass reception. He finished the day with nine carries for 160 yards rushing and 44 yards on two receptions.

Quarterback Dylan Milligan was 3-for-5 in passing for 65 yards and threw a touchdown pass.

Noah Lindsay rushed for 50 yards, while Zander Large had 21 yards receiving.

Kopp was named the game’s most valuable player, while Lindsay earned the most sportsmanlike player honours.

The B.C. champion RedBlacks are: Zachari White, Dylan Milligan, Justin Orge, Zander Large, Noah Lindsay, Shamus Hogarth, Simon Paul, Riley Green, Isaac Witt, Taylor Schwinghamer, Teja Gaskell, Alexander Houghton, Kyren Peterman, Paul Hauk, Mitch Kopp, Dylan Hilts, Jordan Lee and Colby Dupuis.
